Editors note: Brooke Adams has an astute, sound and powerful team behind her. From all accounts, Brook Adams and her team are in this race for the right reasons. With Brooke's background in Australia, she may also pick up a few votes from the yanks who find Australians "flavor on the month". As Steve points out, they will not succumb to "gimmicks" and cheap TV. They are serious about winning the election. Team Adams may just win this thing!

Bio of Brook Adams: (courtesy Brook Adams official website)

Brooke Adams, 25, was born in Mission Viejo, California. A life-long resident of Southern California, Brooke is the daughter of Orange County Superior Court Judge, John Adams, and Sally Adams, a high school teacher.

Brooke distinguished herself early in life as an outstanding student at Huntington Beach High School. As a freshman, she was elected to the student body government. She was later elected Vice-President of the Junior Class.

A talented athlete, Brooke lettered on the Cheerleading Team all four years of high school. A popular student, she was elected the Homecoming Queen of 1995. Brooke graduated from Huntington Beach High School in 1996.

Brooke began her college career at the University of Oregon. While majoring in journalism, Brooke served as a freelance reporter for the Emerald Student Newspaper. In 1998, Brooke transferred to the University of Southern California, where she graduated in 2000, with Honors, from the prestigious Walter Annenberg School of Communication.

As a student at USC, Brooke served internship positions with ABC and CNN, where she assisted in developing news stories and interviews. After graduation, Brooke went to work as an Assistant Account Executive with the Young Company, an advertising and media firm with offices in Los Angeles and Orange County. After a brief stint as an on-air reporter for a Los Angeles television station, Channel 35, Brooke joined Gramercy Partners, a publishing firm based in Los Angeles, as an Account Executive.

Brooke has a keen ear for listening and a job that brings her in daily contact with business leaders throughout California. She is acutely aware of the damage the Davis administration has done to businesses large and small. As Governor, one of her top priorities will be to improve business opportunities, reduce government red tape and fix worker’s comp.

Adams said, "My administration will welcome business back to California with open arms. Our top priority will be fiscal responsibility and improving California's bond rating."
