State Rep. Dwight Evans defends actions on 6ABC

State Rep. Dwight Evans, who told the Daily News his side of the story last week about his controversial actions with the School Reform Commission's plans for Martin Luther King High School, appeared yesterday on 6ABC's Inside Story program.

Evans said he is not concerned about the impact of this issue on his legacy after 30 years in the state House.  "No, no, just the opposite," he said. "People who know me know what I've done on Stenton Avenue and Ogontz Avenue. I mean, there's not a project in this city I haven't been involved in, from the School District to the Convention Center. The record is very clear. I would match my record and experience with anybody. I have no reason to apologize."
