Please do not hesitate to reach out to her District offices in Charlotte and Greensboro, or to her DC office with any concerns that you would like Congresswoman Adams to address.

Local issues in the District will always be my primary concern. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our District or DC offices with any concerns that you may have.
