Adams announces re-election bid

Richard N. Adams, State Representative for the 79th District has announced his re-election plans.

Adams indicated he was preparing an informative campaign to share with the citizens of the 79th District, which includes all of Miami County and about 35 percent of Darke County. He indicated his re-election petitions will be filed within a few days.

"I have made some progress in Columbus in 2009 and will continue to work very hard in 2010, but more needs to be done, which motivates me to seek another term as State Representative to work for the residents of the 79th District," Adams said.

Adams is currently serving his first term as a member of the Ohio House of Representatives. He serves on the Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee with his background being reared on a dairy farm and a bachelor of science degree in agriculture from The Ohio State University. He is a member of the Education Committee as a result of his work as the founding superintendent of the Upper Valley JVS and graduate degrees earned at The Ohio State University. In addition he served for 18 years on the board of trustees at Edison Community College. Adams is a member of the Elections and Ethics Committee because of his experience as a two term member of the Miami County Board of Elections. Representative Adams is serving on the Financial Institutions, Real Estate and Securities Committee with his background as a member of the Unity National Bank Board of Directors.

Adams is an advocate for down sizing, or as he calls it right sizing, state government as a way of balancing the state budget without cutting state funds to local agencies and without increasing taxes. As a result he has been nominated to the powerful House of Representatives Finance Committee and expects to be confirmed when the House reconvenes.

In addition Representative Adams serves on three General Assembly committees representing the House of Representatives including the Complete Census Count Committee, Educational Preservation of State History Committee and National Statuary Collection Study Committee (This committee will select an Ohioan to have a statue of honor placed in Statuary Hall of the United States of American Congress).

In his first year as a legislator, Adams has a 100 percent attendance record at all of the House Committee meetings and has voted on 100 percent of all bills considered by the House of Representatives. In addition, he is responding to dozens of constituent responses for information or assistance per week.

Representative Adam resides in Concord Township near Troy, with his wife Sandy, an RN. They have three adult children and three grandchildren. Adams and his wife enjoy kayaking, canoeing, and boating along with swimming, bicycling and hiking. Adams is a member of the Miami County Foundation Board of Directors, the Miami County Farm Bureau, the Miami and Darke Counties Republican Men's Clubs, the Miami County Republican Central Committee and the Miami County Republican Leader's Club. He is a member of the Ohio Chapter of The National Assembly of Sportmen's Caucuses.

Representative Adams is a full-time legislator. Adams represents Arcanum, Pitsburg, and several townships primarily in southeast Darke County, in addition to all of Miami County.
