State Senator Thurman Adams passed away in the last 24 hours . While many may dispute his politics and legislative style, it is a mathematical fact that he has shown political staying power. He had been in the State Senate since 1972, meaning he had served through the Nixon, Ford ,Carter, Reagan, George H.W. Bush , Clinton, George W Bush and Barack Obama adminstrations. The only other current member to serve since 1972 is House Speaker Rep. Bob Gilligan.
My sympathy is extended to the Adams family at this time of sorrow.
