Getting to know Speaker-Elect Adams

The Tribune has the front page full write up of Speaker-Elect Kirk Adams over the weekend. Some would say that his story reads like the Jerry Maguire of the Arizona Legislature. He becomes inspired and creates his own sort of manifesto, goes up against some long odds and takes on some powerful folks, and ends up coming out on top.

Its interesting to learn more about legislators and their families. So often, we see them in the papers in their suits or on the TV at some sort of press conference that its easy to forget that they are real people. Adams has a tough road ahead of him in the budget, but let's hope he remembers Mesa in the process.
