Adams to face Gerald Eaves in Republican primary on April 19
Tamiann Adams is one of four people to file to run for the Union County Council District 5 seat left vacant with the death of council member Tommie Hill. Adams provided WBCU News with her official announcement and letter to the public. The full three-page letter can be seen on our WBCU Facebook page.
Adams states that she believes it is her civic duty and calling as a 16-year active resident that she takes on the responsibility of becoming the voice of the people in her community. Adams is a realtor in Union County. Prior to that, she served as a contract manager of mortuary services working with the US military, Department of Veterans Affairs, and the National Institute of Health. She says she has written and procured multi-million-dollar government contracts and has a deep understanding of lean accounting processes, root cause and root cost analysis, and advance metric budgeting strategies, all of which she says she will use to maximize the efficiency of the county budget and to procure outside funding.
She volunteers with Girl Scouts, Red Cross, and is a Guardian Ad Litem through the court system. She is vice-chair of the Union County Republican Party and secretary of the Union County Republican Women. She is a member of the Civitan Club, as well. In February 2020, she formed the Concerned Citizens Group with a mission and focus centered around keeping local politicians accountable and to demand transparency. She says she is trying to form a community watch group for district 5 to generate short-term and long-term solutions to the general safety and wellbeing of the community. They will hold an interest meeting this Saturday, March 12, at 5 p.m. in the Charmed building at 708 South Duncan Bypass.
She says her primary focus is to enhance the quality of life for constituents with a focus on education and youth development.
Adams will face Gerald Eaves in the Republican primary for the County Council District 5 seat on April 19. The winner will face the Democratic candidate in the special election, to be held Tuesday, June 21. The Democratic candidates are James Rainwater and Carolyn Rutherford.
