Minnesota DFL Hires New Communications Director

Today, the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party announced the hire of Communications Director Brian Evans, who previously served in a variety of communications, digital, and political roles in Wisconsin. Recently, Evans worked as the Communications and Digital Director on Kelda Roys’ campaign for governor.

“I’m excited to announce that the DFL has hired Brian Evans as our new Communications Director,” said DFL Chairman Ken Martin. “Our party is in a strong position to continue the progress we made last cycle, and Brian’s unique mix of traditional and digital communications skills will help us do just that. His hire will further strengthen the DFL and allow us to spread our message in new and innovative ways.”

In addition to Roys’ gubernatorial campaign, Brian Evans also worked as the Senior Digital Organizer at Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin. Prior to those roles, Evans spent several years at the Democratic Party of Wisconsin (DPW), first as the Deputy Candidate Services Director, then as the Deputy Communications Director. He also served as the Vice-Chair of the DPW’s LGBT Caucus for a year. Evans’ first day at the DFL is March 11th, 2019.

“Having spent the last eight years in Scott Walker’s Wisconsin, I know first-hand what happens to a state that stops investing in public schools, neglects its roads and bridges, and puts politics ahead of people,” said Brian Evans. “That’s what Minnesota Republicans have to offer, which is why I’m thrilled to be joining the DFL. I look forward to working with Chairman Martin to continue electing candidates who put the needs of Minnesotans first.”
