In 2019, 2020, and 2021, Adam was included on Thomson Reuters's list of "Super Lawyers," an honor given only to 2.5% of attorneys in each state.
Adam will apply the following bedrock principles to any decision he makes on the city council. First, Adam believes the government exists to serve its citizens, not intrude upon their lives. The best government is transparent and lean. Second, Adam believes that Centerville's citizens are the backbone of the community, and he will work preserve Centerville as a destination for residents and families to thrive. Third, Adam believes in development and growth that is measured, considered, and thoroughly vetted by members of the community.
If Adam is not in the office or with his family, then you can find him riding his mountain bike in the foothills or playing his electric guitar.
