Spotlight: After 20-year career, Royce Adams says boat safety bill is his proudest moment
03/29/2012 01:17 PM
Democratic Rep. Royce Adams of Dry Ridge was a reluctant legislator.
After Grant County leaders talked into running 20 years ago, the oil company owner said he grew to enjoy the job.
He said his proudest moment was the 1998 passage of a bill to make illegal driving a boat under the influence of alcohol.
Adams has endorsed Wanda Crupper Hammons — the daughter of Dry Ridge Mayor Clay Crupper, who was Adams’ predecessor in the 61st House seat. Hammons is running against Camilla “Kay” Patton in the Democratic primary. Republicans Brian Linder and Scott Bruce have filed to run for the seat as well.
