Hooker Native Seth Adams age 23, files for State Congress
06/24/2010

Seth Adams will challenge Incumbent Gus Blackwell for a spot in the Oklahoma State House.

A Conservative for the Panhandle," and "A Voice of Reason in an Unreasonable Time." That is what 23-year-old Hooker, Oklahoma native Seth Adams promises to be if elected to the Oklahoma State House of Representatives.

Adams said he is running because the times we are facing calls for a voice of reason.

"I think it's time that the youth steps up and gets out there and shows that we can also make a difference. A lot of people have said the youth don't get involved in politics, well here I am, and we are ready to make a difference," Adams said.

Adams said if elected he would work hard to oppose tax increases, stop unnecessary spending in Oklahoma, help farmers and small businesses, protect rural health care, defend traditional marriage, and to uphold the Oklahoma and U.S. Constitution.

Adams is also a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and the right to life. Adams also is against special interest groups and has already turned several down who have called and tried to get involved in his campaign.

Adams grew up in Hooker and played basketball. In the past he has announced athletic events for KGYN in Guymon, and for the Oklahoma Panhandle State University student radio station. Adams favorite memories of broadcasting includes OPSU's basketball upset win over Colorado State in Fort Collins, and the chance to fulfill a dream by announcing an exhibition basketball game in Norman between OPSU and OU.

Adams has most recently worked in education and he enjoys listening to conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. Adams said Limbaugh is a voice of reason.

When Adams was in fifth grade one of his teachers sent him to the hall because he made a comment about not liking math. His teacher told him that if he didn't like the way things were done that he should just try to reform education someday. Adams responded and said, "Maybe I well."

Adams will challenge incumbent Gus Blackwell who has held the State House seat in District 61 for eight years. District 61 is the largest district in the state. The Republican primary will take place on Tuesday, July 27, 2010.

Adams will be a guest on B107.5 on Saturday morning between 9:40 a.m. - 10 a.m.
