Greetings! My name is Becky Evans. I am excited, humbled, and honored to be your Representative for Georgia House District 83.
I began my political experiences through my time at Emory University. My husband David and I raised our three adult children here in Dekalb County for the past 27 years, all of whom attended Druid Hills High School. My family have been active members of North Decatur Presbyterian Church for 31 years. I have dedicated my life to servant leadership, and I have served my community in many roles: nonprofit co-founder, political aide, volunteer, advocate, and mother. We love living in our community and I bring all my experience and passion for service to the Capitol as your representative.
In my final year at Emory, I was fortunate enough to be a member of the first class of interns at the Carter Center. Addressing the class, Jimmy Carter quoted his beloved teacher, Miss Julia Coleman, and said “we must adjust to changing times and still hold to unchanging principles.”
This message has resonated with me throughout my life and is on my mind everyday as I fight to implement the changes our community values:
healthy and safe neighborhoods
ethical and transparent government
access to economic opportunity
expanded public transit
strong schools to safeguard the future of our state
In the midst of changing times, I will always hold strong to these community principles of House District 83.
