TUTOR, RESEARCHER, PUBLIC SERVANT.
Jordan Evans is a tutor, writer, and public official from the town of Charlton, Massachusetts. Community oriented, she was elected to the Charlton Public Library’s Board of Trustees in 2015 to fill out a vacancy where she became Vice-Chairwoman, and then was re-elected to a full-term in 2016. That same year she was elected as Town Constable. Alongside her elected efforts, she serves her community as a poll worker and was the secretary for the Charlton Government Study Committee from 2015 to when it disbanded in 2016.
A passionate supporter of the arts, Jordan has served the Charlton Cultural Council since 2011. Initially the grant coordinator and social media director, she became chair in 2013 and served until assuming an ex officio position in 2016. During her time aboard the council, she sought to promote a sustainable interest in the arts and culture, oversaw the first of many annual grant award galas, and acted as the face of the council in all town affairs.
In 2013, Jordan worked alongside other Republicans in the town to reorganize the Charlton Republican Town Committee. She serves the Committee as the recording secretary as well as the republican member of the local Registrar of Voters. She stood as a candidate for delegate to the 2016 Republican National Convention and served as a delegate to the 2014 State Convention.
Jordan is deeply involved in the Dudley-Charlton Regional School District, being the recording secretary for the Dudley-Charlton Education Foundation, and briefly a substitute teacher in the district. She believes that a prime education should be a top priority, and works with both kids and adults as a private tutor. She is also involved with The Heart To Heart Charity Foundation, inc., a family run 501c3 nonprofit organization that helps families of children stricken with life altering illnesses. Jordan holds a Bachelor’s Degree in History from Worcester State University, as well as an Associate Degree in the Liberal Arts from Quinsigamond Community College.

In 2015 she presented her undergraduate thesis, “Ballot Access as Part of the American Political System”, as part of a panel on American identity for their 2015 Spring conference. In 2013, she briefly worked with the office of then-Massachusetts State Representative Dan Winslow on a ballot access bill to ease the burden of signature requirements of candidates for office and another to redefine the definition of “party designation”. Dedicated to fair elections irregardless of affiliation, she has presided over the Charlton Republican Town Committee’s 2014 Convention caucus and preference poll, and the Libertarian Association of Massachusetts’ 2013, 2014, and 2016 State Convention leadership and delegate selection process.
Jordan has a firm commitment to civil liberties and helped to establish the Worcester State University chapter of the Young Americans for Liberty. As an openly transgender individual within the Commonwealth, she was a fervent advocate for the passage of the 2016 transgender public accommodations bill and worked alongside such organizations as Freedom for Massachusetts to lobby lawmakers on Beacon Hill.
