When the Congressional Black Caucus Executive Committee met with President Donald Trump at the White House this week, they discussed a number of key issues affecting the African-American community. Congressman Dwight Evans, who represents Pennsylvania’s 2nd District, which includes parts of Philadelphia and Montgomery counties, said the topics included ones that impact one of his own priority agenda items — middle neighborhoods. “Members of our (CBC) Executive Committee have made it clear to the president that in order to help America’s middle neighborhoods, neighborhoods on the verge of growth and decline, we need to act and tackle issues such as food insecurity and increased investments in school rehabilitation and infrastructure,” Evans said in an interview with The Tribune on Thursday.
