Gilbert Mayor John Lewis has endorsed Kirk Adams for Congress. Regarding his support, Lewis said, “We have two good men running to represent the East Valley. I have had the privilege of working with Kirk Adams the past few years and seeing his focus on economic development and bringing jobs to Arizona. His jobs bill and focus on tax cuts have been helpful to Arizona’s recovery. I appreciate his energy and focus on fiscal responsibility and business development.”

Kirk Adams said of Mayor Lewis. “I am grateful to call Mayor Lewis a friend. He is one of the finest men I know both in politics and in life. He is a collaborator who brings people together, and knows how to promote Gilbert and the East Valley’s interests. I am grateful to have his support.”


About Kirk Adams
Kirk Adams is son of Linda and Dave Adams. He is a life long resident of the East Valley. Kirk is a husband, father, and small businessman with 20 employees. 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. His campaign is endorsed and chaired by Senator Jon Kyl.

Adams, a lifelong East Valley resident, lives in Mesa with his wife JaNae Soelberg Adams and their five children.
