Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, in 1976, Adam moved around as a child. Eventually, moving to Louisiana, where he graduated from Albany High School. Adam was an exceptional student. He excelled in athletics, specifically track where Adam was the district MVP. Life looked promising for Adam.

But for Adam the easy way was never his way. He joined the Army and served 14 years of service. Adams’ first Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) was logistics and operations pertaining to the ULLS-G Computer system, inventories, shipping and receiving parts, dispatching, and balancing budgets for hundreds of soldiers. Adam would then be promoted to a Motor Sargent, while cross training as a light and heavy weight mechanic for various engineering battalions. During his time Adam was stationed in Belize, Honduras, and Korea.

After 14 years of service, tragedy struck, bring his military career to a halt. A serious injury left him in a wheelchair. His doctors giving him no chance of ever walking again. This may have been the doctor’s prognosis; they did not know the strength of Adam Salyer. Through unimaginable hard work, painful rehab, and faith, Adam survived 17 surgeries despite the doctor’s devastating prognosis. He walked again leaving the wheelchair in the past and grabbing life by the horns.

Adam became a successful Real Estate agent. Once again, his career was halted due to a Cancer diagnosis. After a 4-year battle, through his faith in God, Adam once again prevailed and beat the Cancer.  Setback again, Adam would retake his Real Estate training and licensing exam. He would pass and become a licensed agent in Texas.

This next 87th Legislature we will push forward legislation for full school reform. We will fight for property tax reform to ease the burden on Senior Citizens and Texans all around the state. I will not give empty promises to our district. We will promote policies that economically benefit the constituents of this district. Education is not Republican or Democrat. It is about our children and their future. Failing schools in our district is unacceptable. We must fight for better education. It is all about finding the next genius our schools.
