MASON CITY – Paul Adams has announced he is a candidate for city council.

Mr. Adams made his announcement Wednesday morning via a press release:

Paul Adams

Paul Adams

I am announcing my candidacy for the vacant At Large City Council position in the City of Mason City.

I am a 2002 graduate of Rockwell-Swaledale High School and a 2004 graduate of NIACC. I then attended the University of Iowa and studied Economics and Political Science. I spent my first 9 years after college working for Hy-Vee, Inc. in management. In May of 2014, I left Hy-Vee to take a position with Principal Financial in Mason City where I am currently a Sr. Client Service Associate.

My wife, Emily Adams, was born and raised in Mason City. She is currently employed as the Office Manager at the Dental Center of North Iowa in Mason City.

We have 2 sons, ages 5 and 2. We chose to move back to Mason City when our oldest son was 1 because we wanted our kids to grow up in the same area we were both raised. I know Mason City has a lot to offer and am pursuing the vacant seat on the city council because I believe in this city and want to help ensure that my kids’ generation and beyond have the opportunity and motivation to raise a family in Mason City like my wife and I decided to do.


Paul Adams joins Max Weaver and Andy O’Brien as confirmed candidates for this city council seat.

      I would have to agree with anonymous, Mark you really need to get a clue because a lot of people still talk like that. Mark, you should also get a clue and do some research and not just form your opinion based on a picture of somebody.

      Get a clue Mark!
      Youth is what we need and just because you wear a suit does not make you a yes-man! Paul is definitely not a yes-man!

      At 32 years old, you know enough to know that what we have now is not working. The current leadership is hurting our people. He has some education, work ethic, comes from good hard-working stock. No one comes to the council table with all the credentials needed. Just look at the people on their now. Solberg, Hickey, Schoneman, Lee, the only ones are Schickel and the dearly departed Alex Kuhn, may he rest in peace. We need new blood, with no baggage..

    Paul is a good man and will do good things for our city. He will be fair and represent everyone equally. I believe he will work well with city staff and the other city council members to help improve our city. He will be the voice of all not just the voice of the elite.

      If he wins (I think he has a shot) he will have to be tough and able to stand up to the intimidation and bullying.

      No offense to Paul, but your statement is inherently false. It’s impossible to represent everyone equally, as politics by its nature involves a decision one way or another. There are bound to be those who get their way, and those who do not. The question is who will Paul side with? What ideas will he favor? He wants to be one of those “i’m educated, married, and employed so you should vote for me” without ever disclosing how he thinks about the world. No thanks. Specifics are risky, but without them you get another crony capitalist good old boy.

        Peter, you are not qualified to be a dog poop collector, don’t try to give political advice. (I know you had a great run and the City Council seat in Clear Lake but the 5 votes you got didn’t take you over the top.) Don’t think you are qualified to give advice here.

          I see i struck another nerve. Easy to see when i do as a wordy, predictable attack ensues. Still talking about the election where I called half the town out for being crony double standard hypos? Aww, you must be another 321.436 denier. Wah wah wah, baby with a rattle.

            Are you trying to imply that I am staying up too late? That I might be impaired? Well I don’t need intoxicants to come off as impaired. I can do that first thing in the morning as I get my coffee!

          Ok John, i will put it another way. Anytime you hear a candidate say they will “represent everyone equally” you will know automatically they are FULL OF SHIT. That’s a catch all b.s. phrase which b.s. politicians use to trick the common person into believing they have their interests at heart.

    I’ve known Paul for several years. He has a great head on his shoulders and would do great things if given this opportunity! Had I not moved out of town you would have my vote Paul! Good luck in this process.
