Leadership, not labels
In her work for moderate Republican legislators, Jessica Adamson learned how tough it is to get politicians to agree on solutions - because too many elected officials focus on party labels instead.
And when the Republican Party strayed from its foundations of personal responsibility, individual liberty and fiscal accountability, Jessica took a new road. Based on her experiences, Jessica decided that a little independent thinking makes a whole lot of sense.
Strengthening our schools
Jessica will work for stable school funding, smaller class sizes, and more vocational training. Jessica's plan also includes more educational opportunities for combat veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. That's why the entire Sherwood School Board supports Jessica.
