Jim Evans' primary opponent joins his campaign

(From Democratic Seventh District Congressional candidate Jim Evans)

Jim Evans is delighted to announce that Genevieve Williams, his former opponent in the Democratic Primary, will be joining the Jim Evans for Congress team for the final forty days of the campaign.

She will be serving as a vital member of the campaign team as a Social Media Coordinator and special liaison.

Genevieve has been an active citizen in the Southwest Missouri area for many years and has been a valuable member of the communities of Neosho, Joplin, and Springfield as a teen and young adult.

She became known to many in the region through her work immediately after the Joplin tornado and throughout Joplin’s recovery, serving as a principal source of reliable information and support to residents of the area through various social media outlets. Her efforts have been recognized by federal, state and local agencies including the University of Missouri Extension and FEMA.

Immediately following her loss to Evans in the Democratic Primary, Ms. Williams served as a campaign advisor and manager for a Texas Congressional candidate.

Having returned to her Ozarks home, Genevieve’s expertise and dedication to civic life were immediately solicited by the Evans campaign. This was a natural development in that Jim had noted of her, in a release distributed after the primary, “I eagerly look forward to her support and assistance as we move forward together toward the general election.”

Today that desire has become a reality.
