“I care deeply about Adams County,” said Clark. “But, we simply must do better. Our kids are leaving, our taxes are rising, and new opportunities are few and far between. With over half of Adams County residents in poverty – the people of Adams County are looking to local officials for leadership. I’m stepping forward to make this county stronger and I know that I can use my decades of leadership experience to help get the people of Adams County the results they want and deserve,” said Clark.
