Local issues in the District will always be the primary concern of Congresswoman Adams. She takes her duties as the U.S. Representative of North Carolina’s 12th Congressional District very seriously. Whether she is securing federal funding for district schools or health care institutions, or fighting for a living wage and affordable taxes for her constituents, she will always put the needs of the 12th District first, and be its advocate in the House of Representatives.
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.
