Erie City Councilman John Evans is a Republican seeking election Nov. 5 in a city tilted heavily toward Democratic voter registration.
But six Democrats on council appointed him to fill a vacancy on the seven-member council. Tonight, Democrats are invited to find out why they appointed Evans and to learn more about the candidate at Scully’s Pub and Pizzeria, 408 State St.
The event will be from 5 to 8 p.m., with free drinks and food provided.
Evans is one of five candidates seeking four seats on council. The other four candidates are Democrats.
