Several of us were apprehensive at the outset, but by the […]

Kirk Adams calls for unity and support of Matt Salmon

Posted: September 28, 2012 at 2:30 pm   /   Arizona, Elections, Politics

I first got involved in politics as an unpaid advocate for small business. I believed then as I do now that the heart of the American experience is the opportunity to pursue happiness.
