Councilman James Howard Adams was elected to City Council in 2019. He has called Boulder City his home for over 25 years.
In addition to serving on the Southern Nevada Water Authority, Councilman Adams also serves on the Board of Health for the Southern Nevada Health District.
As a professional performer and musician, Councilman 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.
Councilman 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. His current term ends in November 2022.
