Kirk Adams Campaign Releases New Video Featuring Sen. Jon Kyl 

East Valley, AZ – Honorary Campaign Chairman, Senator Jon Kyl recently held an event for Kirk Adams and it was recorded into a web video, which the Kirk Adams campaign released today.

“Some folks go back to Washington, and they change,” Kyl said, “We need folks like Kirk in Washington; these are really difficult times as you know and Kirk has the experience, he’s got common sense, he’s practical but he’s idealistic in a conservative way.”

Kirk Adams shook up Arizona’s state Capitol, and the conservative reformer will do the same in Congress.

A rising star in the Republican Party, Adams joined the state House in 2006 and was soon frustrated by the unwillingness and inability of Republicans in the Legislature to stand up for conservative principals. He launched a long-shot campaign to oust the veteran Speaker of the House and shocked the Republican establishment when he won Speakership at only 35 years of age.

Adams put the House back on a fiscally responsible track. Tackling some of the most challenging issues in Arizona history, Adams demonstrated true political courage and aggressively pushed his conservative reform agenda.

A native Arizonan and small business owner, Adams lives in Mesa with his wife JaNae and their six children.

Kirk Adams Pledges to not take a Congressional Pension

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 24, 2012
CONTACT: Chad Heywood

Mesa, AZ – Kirk Adams today pledged that if elected to Congress, he will not take a pension for his service. As Speaker of the Arizona House, Mr. Adams made a similar promise, forgoing any pension for his service in the Legislature.

Explaining his motivation for refusing his pensions, Adams said, “People are tired of career politicians enriching themselves through elected office. In meetings with voters across the East Valley, I hear again and again that they are tired of Washington elites living by one set of rules and legislating a different set of rules for the people.

Voters want to be represented by public servants, not career politicians or lobbyists who benefit from the system. I put my money where my mouth is. I did not take a pension for my service here in Arizona and I will not take a pension if I am elected to Congress.”

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 principles 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.

Mesa, AZ – Kirk Adams for Congress received the endorsement of Chris Bowen today. Mr. Bowen is a businessman, entrepreneur, and former campaign manager to numerous Arizona campaigns. Explaining his support for Adams, Bowen said:

“I was Matt Salmon’s campaign manager when he first ran for Congress in 1994. I was his primary campaign manager when he ran for Governor in 2002. However, for me, the future of our country outweighs personal ties of the past. I know Matt Salmon and I know Kirk Adams. There is no question that Kirk is the right guy to send to Congress at this time.

I remember Kirk when he was a grassroots activist leading a tax revolt in Mesa. As Speaker of the House, Kirk was an extraordinary leader on fiscal and social issues. Kirk is a bright, successful businessman who knows how to get government off our backs. We need a proven, fresh leader with real-world experience whose agenda is a better America; not a better connection.”

Kirk Adams expressed his appreciation for Mr. Bowen’s endorsement, “It means a lot to receive the endorsement of Chris Bowen. Chris has been around politics as an observer, and as a highly skilled professional. His experience in government, politics, and in business give him unique insights into what is happening in our nation right now. I am grateful for his support.”
