Conservative Gilbert leaders endorse Kirk Adams for Congress

Local leaders praise Adams’ ability to make the tough decisions to shake-up Washington and get America back on track.

GILBERT, AZ – Kirk Adams is proud to announce the latest additions to his growing conservative coalition: Gilbert Vice-Mayor Jenn Daniels and Council Members Eddie Cook, Ben Cooper and Jordan Ray.

“Kirk Adams is a rising leader for conservatives,” said Vice-Mayor Jenn Daniels. “He has proven that he is willing to make the difficult choices to solve our generational challenges. Kirk represents the values that families of Gilbert hold dear. He will be a strong, conservative leader for our community.”

Councilman Jordan Ray said: “Kirk Adams is just what our country needs in Congress. Kirk has a record of standing up for families and conservative values. As an East Valley small businessman, Kirk has a vested interest in making sure our community is successful. More than anything, Kirk has proven he has the guts to make the tough decisions to reform Washington.”

Adams welcomed these East Valley leaders to his growing coalition.

“I’m honored to have the support of Vice-Mayor Jenn Daniels and Council Members Eddie Cook, Jordan Ray and Ben Cooper. Our campaign continues to gain strength everyday. With the support of these respected community leaders, we are one step closer to shaking-up Washington.”

Kirk Adams is a rising star in the Republican Party, and a conservative reformer who shook-up Arizona’s state Capitol and will do the same thing in Congress.

A husband, father and small businessman, after joining the state House in 2006, Adams found himself 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 and one full term in office – making him the youngest Speaker in Arizona history.

Adams led the House back in a conservative direction with an aggressive reform agenda, taking on some of the most challenging issues in Arizona history – issues others were afraid to address because of the potential political fallout.

A native Arizonan, Adams and his wife JaNae live in Mesa and have five children.
