Fighting for my District
My name is J. Stuart Adams and I am a lifetime resident of Davis County. I graduated from Layton High in 1972 and went on to earn my Bachelor of Arts at the University of Utah in business finance. I currently reside in Layton where my wife Susan and I raised our four children: Angie, Kristin, Lizzy and Stephanie. Today we are proud grandparents to fourteen grandchildren.
I am a partner in the Adams Company, a Real Estate, Construction and Development Firm in Kaysville. During my time in real estate, I was named Builder of the Year by the Northern Wasatch Home Builders Association.
I proudly serve as Majority Whip in the Utah State Senate. Before being elected to the Senate, I served four and half years in the Utah House of Representatives. I am the Former Chairman of the Utah Transportation Commission and I am currently Chairman of the Military Installation Development Authority (MIDA).
During my time representing the 22nd District, I have championed legislation to address religious freedoms, affordable energy, clean air and transportation. Prior to my time in the legislature, I served 9 years on the Layton City Council.
I’m honored to represent the community where I grew up and raised my family and where you call home. Please feel free reach out to me if you would like to learn more about my efforts to represent our community.
