Hi! I am Dave Adams. My wife, Ann, and I have always called the Kaysville/Fruit Heights area home. We both graduated from Davis High, and I continued my education at Weber State University, earning a Bachelors of Technical Sales. I have worked mainly in the construction industry, primarily in home building and excavation. We are now raising our three boys in Kaysville, grateful that they get to enjoy the same close knit community we grew up in. I believe in hard work, honesty, sacrifice for the greater good, and a healthy dose of fun. My background as a successful business owner will be an asset to our city as I have learned how to carefully scrutinize expenses and make each dollar stretch. I am committed to transparency and accountability in government and believe each citizen has a right to have his or her concerns heard and truthfully thought out and addressed. I won’t forget the little things make our Kaysville community great. I love living in a place where people get outside, know their neighbors, support their schools, play with their families, and have city pride. It’s our city’s best asset and I plan to continue to build and foster those feelings. While Kaysville has an incredible history to be proud of, some change is necessary. I would be honored to help usher in Kaysville’s bright future.

As a young man, I was raised in poverty by my mother on the east coast. I learned early in life to work hard.  I first came to Utah in 1999 with two military duffle bags and a little bit of money. After returning home from an LDS mission to San Diego, I met my wife Erika while studying Construction Management and Business at BYU. We've now been happily married for 10 years and have two energetic daughters whom we love and enjoy.  As a Project Manager for Okland Construction, I've had the unique opportunity to manage numerous landmark construction projects like Richard's Court at City Creek and the Huntsman Cancer Hospital expansion. Additionally, I've earned several industry certifications and awards.  I also currently work as an Adjunct Professor at Salt Lake Community College.  I recently completed the St. George Ironman and enjoy several outdoor sports. As an adopted son of Kaysville, I'm excited to support and contribute to our hometown.  I believe that service to our country and community should be considered by all.  Looking at the challenges our community currently faces, I feel that I have a unique perspective and background that could contribute to improving our city.

My wife Carolyn and I moved to Kaysville after I graduated with a Masters in Computer Science from BYU in 1989.  Shortly after moving to Kaysville, Carolyn created a puppet design and manufacturing business.  I took care of the legal, payroll, and financial aspects of the business.  We built a store on 200 North called the Puppetorium in 1996 and after 4 short years, the business outgrew the building and we built a larger building in the Business Park.  We have five children and the grandchildren are trickling in.  I have been a software developer, architect, and system administrator, and entrepreneur for the past 25 years and currently work as a senior software engineer for a local company.  I am currently on a HOA board and have done treasurer work there.  I understand numbers and policy and can objectively determine the efficacy and equity of both. My experience in working with divisive issues and being able to have cordial constructive conversation with both sides of those issues will be beneficial as a city council member.  I am running for office with you in mind.  My agenda is to first listen, understand concerns, and to act equitably.

Campaign Financial Reports

I was raised in Kaysville.  I attended Burton Elementary, Kaysville Jr. High and Davis High School.  I am married to my perfect friend, Jenny. We have 3 children - Caeldton, Rieley and Taylor.  I attended the University of Utah.  I worked for financial institutions for most of my career in human resource systems.  I am currently the Director of Human Resource Services for Progrexion in Salt Lake City.  I started my city service as a planning commissioner in 2009.  I was then appointed to the City Council in January 2011 to fill the remaining term of Council Member Ally Isom when she resigned to join Governor Gary Herbert's office.  I was elected to a full Council term in November 2011.  I've been taught and truly believe that if you expect to be able to vote for someone with the same values, beliefs and priorities as you, you should take your turn in public service.  This is my motivation to run for re-election on the Kaysville City Council.
