James Adams has called Boulder City his home for over 25 years. He was elected to the Boulder City City Council in 2019.
In addition to serving on the Southern Nevada Water Authority, Adams also serves on the Board of Health for the Southern Nevada Health District.
As a professional performer and musician, Adams studied classical cello performance, and has seen the country through the windshield of a rock band’s tour van. His love of music and welcoming personality have also led to his involvement in the organization and promotion of arts and cultural events large and small, throughout Southern Nevada, often benefiting local charities.
Adams earned his degree in Deaf Studies from the College of Southern Nevada. It was through these studies, and his work in the arts, that he learned his love for strengthening communities wherever there is opportunity.
