John Adams

BASCOM, Ohio – John Adams, a fourth-generation family business owner from Sidney, officially announced his candidacy Friday night for Ohio Secretary of State in front of a packed ballroom at Meadowbrook Park. Adams has also served as a Navy SEAL and Ohio State Representative.

“Everyone in this room can walk in and vote with an electric bill. That is not voter I.D. to me. I want to see a card with your picture on it, with a physical body holding it and a signature. That’s voter I.D.,” said Adams during his announcement.
