Meet Duane

Republican Duane Adams is a husband, father, and small business owner serving his community as a member of the Board of Supervisors in Louisa County. He is a former executive of a major insurance company with 41 years of industry experience. He owns a watersports and adventures company with his wife, Susan. He’s been the State President of the Future Farmers of America, Board of Directors of the Weston State Farmers Market, and Chairman of the 56th Legislative District Republican Committee.

Duane is proud to have never voted for a tax increase and he successfully led the effort to partner with Louisa County Public Schools and the Louisa County Sheriff Office to put a School Resource Officer in every school in Louisa County. He has significantly expanded broadband connectivity in the county and eliminated the Conceal Carry Permit Fee. He organized the effort to make Louisa County a Second Amendment Sanctuary County and opposed government mandated closure of small businesses.

Duane supported a historic increase in Public Safety personnel; both Sheriff deputies and Firefighter/EMS staff. He steered the effort to increase compensation for Sheriff Department employees, addressing a decades-long lag in pay and pay compression issues.

Duane lives in Louisa with his wife Susan. He has two sons, Tyler and Dakota, a daughter-in-law Chealsi, and a beautiful granddaughter, Raylin.
