ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — "Right on schedule, still a lot of work to do" It's how Rochester Mayor-Elect Malik Evans assessed his current transition to becoming the leader of the city come Jan. 1
Evans held another news conference Thursday to give an update on the transition of power and share some senior staff appointments, the list of which, can be found below. Full list of bios can be found here. Additional bios of the staff added Thursday can be found here.
• Chief of Staff, Tamara Mayberry
• Director of Special Projects, Hilda Rosario Escher (Just a few hours after the announcement, Rosario-Escher informed Evans she will no longer be able to fill the position.)
Of note, the role of Mayor's Advisor on Violence Prevention Programs, which will be held by Victor Saunders, is what Evans said he initially wanted to title "Gun Czar" as part of his plan to address ongoing violence in the city.
Evans so far has introduced staff hires ranging from the Head of Special Projects to the Human Resources Director and Budget Director.— news10nbc (@news10nbc) December 3, 2021

Additionally, during the roughly 45-minute news conference, Evans detailed each new appointee's background and how they plan to fit in with his administration. The soon-to-be mayor also reflected on his recent time spent at a "New Mayor's School" where he said he spent time with 26 current and soon-to-be mayors. The "school" is where Evans said he gained perspective on where his administration stands in the transition period.
Evans will become the 71st mayor following the end of the current temporary term of James Smith.
