Posted on by admin in Press | Leave a comment

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.

Kirk Adams Only Candidate to Fight Against Obama’s Health Care Law

Posted on by admin in Press | Leave a comment

Did you know that I am the only candidate in this race who has fought against Obama’s health care law? See Video.

Fact #1 As Speaker of the House I worked with my colleagues to join the lawsuit against Washington’s health care takeover. This suit is currently before the Supreme Court and the overreaching health care law is finally receiving the scrutiny and constitutional debate it deserves.

Fact #2 As Speaker of the Arizona House I passed a bill that enabled Arizonans to vote directly on the Healthcare Freedom Act, which opposed the individual mandate in the president’s health care law and protected states’ rights.

Fact #3 Obama’s health care law is a threat to our federalist form of Constitutional government. Please watch the video below to learn more.

Also, to read the transcripts about the Arizona portion of the Supreme Court case, read this link. http://news.heartland.org/newspaper-article/hhs-threatened-arizona-over-78-billion-medicaid-funding

Sincerely,

Kirk Adams

Making Tough Choices The Arizona Way by Kirk Adams

Posted on by admin in Press | Leave a comment

The Super Bowl is fast approaching and, on a whim, you buy a brand new 60 inch plasma TV, maxing out your credit card.  Upon bringing the TV home, you conclude that you must upgrade your cable package to high definition so as to make the most of your extravagant purchase.  When the credit card and cable bills arrive at the end of the month, you promptly go to your boss and demand a raise so that you can afford your entertainment system.  Because you’re the only employee he has, your boss has no choice but to comply and you continue your spending spree.  Sound ridiculous?  This isn’t the world in which you or I live, but this is the reality for Washington.

Our representatives in Washington are supposed to work for us, but instead, they wastefully spend our hard-earned tax dollars and bicker about even the most minor spending cuts. When Washington politicians say they “cut spending” they likely mean that they cut the rate of growth.  These aren’t the real cuts that we make in our home or business budget where we have to squeeze one more year out of the old car, forgo dining out, find ways to save energy, or lay off an employee who is a personal friend. In the real world we must make hard, at times painful, choices.

In Arizona, our Governor and legislature renounced the Washington model and instead confronted reality, making difficult decisions to actually fix problems. Mayors and city councils also made tough cuts and found new and innovative approaches to deliver services.  Arizona voters were engaged throughout the process as well, participating in hearings, community meetings, and citizen budget committees.   Together, we repaired a damaged system.

Over the last 3 years, we cut government spending by nearly 30%–real spending cuts, not just the rate of growth–and recently, we cut taxes for businesses.  Despite dire predictions by critics, our economy is improving and Arizona’s credit outlook was just upgraded http://on.wsj.com/v373qd.  Unemployment is at its lowest since February of 2009; more than 45,000 jobs were added this year. And, we are projecting a budget surplus for next year.

Meanwhile, Washington spent more money and passed legislation to raise your taxes. Our national debt is higher, our credit downgraded, and our economy stalled. Washington is broken. Here’s a little advice for Washington in the new year: follow Arizona’s lead, cut spending and lower taxes. It works.
