Congresswoman Sandy Adams, FL-24
Former Deputy Sheriff Sandy Adams has built a reputation as a
tough, no non-sense leader and is exactly what Central Florida
needs in the United States Congress. While Washington politicians
ignore the problems facing our country, Sandy Adams has
demonstrated her commitment to responsible spending, strong border
protection and national defense, and pro-growth policies that will
Sandy was raised in a military family and joined the U.S. Air Force
at age 17. Once a single parent, who worked two jobs seven days a
week, Sandy decided to pursue a career in law enforcement. In 1985,
she joined the Orange County Deputy Sheriff’s Department where she
served for seventeen years until being elected to the state
legislature in 2002.
Sandy helped found the Central Florida Chapter of the Concerns of
Police Survivors and became a leading advocate for victims’ rights.
She traveled to Tallahassee to push for common-sense legislation
but as she became more exposed to the process, she became more
frustrated as the laws being passed seemed designed to protect the
predators rather than the victims. In 2002, Sandy decided that
rather than complain, she was going to do something about it, ran,
and won a seat in the Florida House of Representatives.
