Meet Adam

Adam Shores has always had a desire to make a difference in the lives of others. He has built a career of more than 20 years in public affairs, advocacy, and communication. In his career, he has fought for stronger teen driving laws across the country, programs to help small businesses grow, and quality education for K-12 students.


In 2016, he joined the Grayslake Village Board, where he's built a record of accomplishment by keeping the village's share of property taxes low, enhancing property values, and adding to the quality of life for residents. Through his work on the Economic Development Commission, he helped attract new businesses to the area, and his authorship of the Community Involvement Grant Program aided local non-profits for the betterment of the community. 


Adam has seen firsthand how an effective government can operate efficiently. The extreme policies coming out of Springfield do not represent our state's values. Adam is running for state representative to put families first, grow our economy, and strengthen our communities. He has a vision for what Illinois can be, and he's ready to help our state reach its greatest potential. 


Adam is an active community member involved in the Grayslake Historical Society, Grayslake Heritage Center Foundation, leadership positions within his church, and the Exchange Club of Grayslake, a service organization working together to better the community.


Adam received his undergraduate degree in Journalism and Political Science from Troy University and his graduate degree in Political Management from George Washington University. He is a long-time Lake County resident and is the father of two sons in our public schools.
