Today’s spotlight: Coral Evans

Title: Mayor, City of Flagstaff

Background: Evans is a social nonprofit and public policy entrepreneur who believes in the concept of thrive-ability as it relates to individuals, neighborhoods and communities. She served two terms (eight years) as a council member prior to her election as mayor of the City of Flagstaff in 2016.

Essence of leadership: “Curiosity. Always be curious about people and places and their stories.  I have made the best connections (both professionally and personally) by taking time to stop, ask questions, learn and listen and gain understanding of a person or a place.”

Surprising fact: “In addition to being mayor, I also DJ at a local bar on the weekend.”
