Adams's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Excerpt: "We must reduce class sizes to allow teachers to provide more direct, personalized, and effective instruction to all students. I will work to ensure we fully fund special education. I will work to increase the education funding foundation level to ensure every child has a quality school environment and quality teachers. I will focus on increasing the state’s role in funding education, and reduce the reliance on property taxes."
- Pension Reform
- Excerpt: "The new attack on the working family comes in the name of "Pension Reform." One of the many reasons our pension system is falling apart is because of abuse by politicians. After decades of bilking the system for their own personal gain, our elected officials are trying to convince taxpayers that public pensions are the cause of our state's problems."
- Balance the Budget
