  • Not Mike Evans. But it kind of looks like him.

Gov. Sonny Perdue has appointed Mike Evans, the former State Transportation Board chief who resigned after he and the Commissioner Gena Abraham revealed they were in a relationship, to the Department of Community Affairs Board. After resigning from the DOT board, Evans was rumored to run for the Public Service Commission's Northern District or try to return to the General Assembly. (Evans served eight years in the state House of Representatives.) He and Abraham recently married and she took his last name.

The Department of Community Affairs serves as an advocate for local governments, operates a large number of state and federal grants, and helps communities with planning, housing and building. (They're also to thank for all those nifty Georgia History markers you see around the state.) Evans will serve as an "at large" representative.
