Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Adams' campaign website lists the following issues:[3]

  • Jobs and the Economy: "The number one issue facing our region and this nation is retaining existing jobs and fostering a business climate that allows for the creation of new jobs."
  • Education: "The Riverside Unified School District has one of the highest dropout rates in the nation. I support the expansion of school choice programs, local control, reducing the size of bloated administrative bureaucracies, and creative solutions such as teacher incentives for producing highly achieving students."
  • Transportation: "This region is negatively impacted due to the volume of goods that pass through on our roads and rails with no local economic benefits. Transportation infrastructure is aging nationwide, and is in a serious state of disrepair. Our nation’s strength, competitiveness and standing as the World’s lone super power depend on our ability to move equipment, goods and people rapidly, economically and efficiently."
  • Crime/Public Safety/National Security: "Having served as a police officer for many years, I can speak with first-hand experience about crime reduction. The Riverside area has a disproportionately high crime rate. The high drop out rate leads to increased crime, which negatively impacts the business community and suppresses job creation."
  • Smaller Government/Transparency/Accountability: "The size of our bloated, overly bureaucratic governments at all levels is completely out of control! We have to refocus government functions to simplify them in order to produce tangible results to identified problems, while maximizing cost effectiveness."
