PROCLAMATION TO HONOR D. KENT EVANS

The Doña Ana County Board of Commissioners will pay tribute Tuesday to former District 4 Doña Ana County Commissioner D. Kent Evans, who died May 29.

On the agenda for the June 12 agenda is a proclamation designating June 23, 2012, as D. Kent Evans Day in Doña Ana County. June 23 would have been Evans’ 50th wedding anniversary, and it is the date chosen by his family for memorial services.

Evans was twice elected to represent District 4, in 2000 and 2004. He was chairman of the commission in 2002 and 2008, and he represented Doña Ana County on numerous statewide boards and committees.

“While we mourn our colleague and send our collective sympathy to his family, we also honor a remarkable man with a sterling record of public service,” said Commission Chairwoman Karen G. Perez.

The June 12 meeting will begin at 9 a.m. in the Commission Chambers of the Doña Ana County Government Center. The Evans family has been invited to attend.
