The public is invited to attend a meet and greet with candidate Terry Adams on March 6. Adams will speak and answer questions about where he stands on relevant issues.
A Navy veteran, attorney and entrepreneur, Adams lives in Knoxville where he and his wife operate a small business.
Terry Adam's father was an Air Force veteran who pumped gas and raised Terry after getting out of the service. His mother was a working mom, a songwriter in Nashville who penned the Connie Smith song "Cry, Cry, Cry." She later cleaned office buildings and worked in hospitals before becoming a secretary at the Tennessee Law Enforcement Training Academy.
With an interest in public service instilled by his parents, Adams joined the Navy reserves on the early enlistment program while still in high school and graduated from the University of Tennessee with the help of the Montgomery GI Bill before attending law school.
"Our country needs to start anew," Adams says. "We are best when we come together, but the politics of the last twelve years has us coming apart. We must work together on the economy for the future of our children, we must fix the broken politics of Washington for the future of our nation, and we must serve our veterans in a way that honors their service to us for the future of our national security. We simply will not accomplish these imperatives by sending the same people back to Washington who created the current conditions in the first place."
Adams faces other candidates in the Democratic primary election on August 7 and if he wins the nomination will face the winner of the Republican primary, either incumbent Sen. Lamar Alexander or his Tea Party challenger, state Rep. Joe Carr, in the November general election.
