Obama advisor Gen. John Adams backs Patterson

Adams endorses Patterson

TUCSON -- Another big endorsement today for Daniel Patterson for AZ State Rep (D-LD29). We are very proud and honored to have the backing of progressive General John Adams.

"Daniel Patterson is a thoughtful, energetic, and effective advocate for better government at the state level. A longtime resident of Tucson, he understands the important issues in his district. An ecologist by education and experience, he will ensure effective stewardship of our environment," said Adams. "A father of a young daughter in public school, he will focus on restoring funding and programs for our lagging public education system. He will address the needs of families in his district, focusing on the economic and health needs of those who most need state assistance. And he will earn the voters' confidence. Daniel Patterson will be an excellent representative in the Arizona House of Representatives for Legislative District 29. It is my privilege to endorse his candidacy."

Brigadier General John Adams retired last year from the U.S. Army after a decorated thirty year career. Among his many accomplishments, General Adams served as the Deputy United States Military Representative to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), as the Assistant Deputy Chief of Staff of Intelligence on the U.S. Army Staff, and as Deputy Director of European Policy for the Office of the Secretary of Defense. General Adams also served tours in Korea and Rwanda, and holds Master's Degrees in International Relations, English, and Strategic Studies.

Gen. Adams advises Sen. Barack Obama on national security issues.
