Before I ask for your support (and your vote) it’s fair that you know something about me. I was raised in a Chicago suburb where I, much to my parent’s disappointment, dropped out of high school. I went on to get a GED from Job Corps in Kentucky. I am eternally grateful for that program. My life brought me to Iowa where I entered Drake University and received an undergraduate degree and then attained my law degree. You’ll hear me talk about going from a “GED to a JD” when I speak.
I’m a small business owner, a compassionate Christian, who is intellectually curious and I seek the truth in everything. I am a life-long learner. I believe in working hard, my background proves it, and I believe a good friend needs to be a good listener.
Among all of my accomplishments my greatest is being a husband and father. My wife, Dr. Shondalette Adams and I work hard to raise sons Khalil and Solomon. As parents we have the upmost trust in the future and we believe, with all our fiber, we are ultimately responsible for giving our children guidance, love and respect.
So, there you have it; a brief snapshot of who I am. I hope it’s enough to cause you to dig deeper, get to know us and our campaign based on being inclusive to all the voters in District 22. Below are some other things I’d like you to know.
I would appreciate your support as we move forward to victory in November.
