Timothy Adams was born and raised in the heart of Humboldt, Tenn. He is the son of Donna Adams Hardimon and the grandson of Carolyn Adams and the late George (Rockin Chair) Adams. He is married to Yolanda Adams.
Adams said that his passion for his community and the citizens of his community is dear to his heart. He went on to add that he is running for alderman because he wants to be a voice and resource for the residents of Ward 5. “I want to help make a change in our great city,” he added.
Adams sees Humboldt as a wonderful community that has retained its small-town feel through extensive growth. He feels the need to keep Humboldt a safe place to live and work. “I want to be an integral part of keeping this community a place for families,” Adams remarked.
“I humbly ask for your vote on November 7, 2017.” As an alderman, Adams has promised to give his very best. He believes he will be able to balance the competing needs of the residents and business owners, helping to grow the community for future generations. Adams said, “With my education in local government administration and extensive experience in politics I have the skills and abilities to help the city create and maintain a balanced budget.”
Adams declared his intention to be not only the voice for the people of Ward 5, but to form a plan to help with the many issues that are a concern to residents and citizens.
Poverty is an issue that Adams will address. He sees the need to work closely with the Humboldt Economic Development Authority and the Chamber of Commerce, particularly the people in those bureaus to work hard with them to bring good paying jobs to Humboldt. He plans to also address the crime issue that is a major concern to residents.
Adams, speaking on the Humboldt Police Department, said, “Our police department is out of control, understaffed and overworked. With me as Alderman we will find out why the police department has become a revolving door with officers leaving.” He wants to find out why it is that Humboldt Police Department trains new officers who are then recruited by other cities. “I will work close with the police chief and fully support him, giving him all the resources he needs,” Adams added.
“Vote for me November 7. I promise you that moving forward will be my goal.”
