In 2014 Adam was elected to the Nebraska Legislature to represent Northeast Lincoln with 68 percent of the vote. He serves on the Education and Judiciary Committees. In his free time, Adam enjoys volunteering, working on his home, Husker football, spending time with his family, running, and the outdoors.
