" I’ve known Wes Adams for many years. We met on the campaign trail as he successfully ran for Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney. I got to know Wes well, and came to know him as a caring father and family man, an excellent prosecutor, and someone who genuinely cares about justice, helping people, and keeping our community safe. His work as state’s attorney justified my faith in him. He did outstanding work, tackling not just crime related to the opioid epidemic, but actively contributing to the solution. Through his work he showed that he was tough on serious and violent crime. When I learned that he had decided to run for judge I knew that he would be an excellent choice. "
A community leader with 25 years legal experience, Wes Adams has the right combination of skills for Judge. His knowledge and involvement in the community and with students is unmatched. He has the right experience to deliver the most appropriate and fair decisions that we need from a judge in Anne Arundel County.
As a Judge, Wes Adams will continue to reflect the values of our community and be tough on those who commit violent crimes and compassionate with non-violent offenders.
He is the most experienced person running for judge and is the only candidate with a proven track record of holding violent and repeat offenders accountable, helping to rehabilitate non-violent offenders and pro-actively working with our vulnerable populations (children, minorities, elderly and the disabled) to help them avoid becoming victims of crime.
