“It's so refreshing to have somebody involved with government that's actually been on the road walked the walk, rather than just watched it and talk the talk,” observes U.S. Air Force veteran Chris Ames.
“We do what's best for kids...it's not what's best for a union or association. Kirk has that perspective, what's best for our country, what's best for our kids,” adds Venessa Whitener, former teacher and current Higley school board member.
“I've been a city firefighter for 5 years—knowing that my pension probably wouldn't be there based on the funding levels is very disheartening,” says firefighter Chris Tiller, “[Kirk] was able to actually draft something, come up with a solution to a problem that I felt very personal about.”
“I'm worried just like every other American mother should be worried. Kirk doesn't come from an old Washington family, he doesn't come from a lobbyist background or someone who’s been in the mix,” notes Gilbert Vice Mayor and mom Jenn Daniels.
“Kirk Adams represents a new and kind of exciting faction of the Republican Party,” ASU Student Body President Joshua Hoyt affirms, “The young conservatives like Eric Cantor and Marco Rubio who are committed to conservatism, but bring a kind of youth and life to the Republican Party.”
Adams is a husband, father, and small businessman. After joining the state House in 2006, he became so frustrated by the unwillingness and inability of Republicans in the Legislature to stand up for their conservative principals that he launched a long-shot campaign to oust the veteran Speaker of the House. Adams shocked the Republican establishment and political class, winning the Speakership at only 35 years of age.
Adams turned the tide in the House and put Arizona back on the path to fiscal responsibility with an aggressive agenda of reform, courageously taking on some of the most challenging issues in Arizona.
Adams, a lifelong East Valley resident, lives in Mesa with his wife JaNae their five children.
