Bowie Mayor Tim Adams on his run for state comptroller

Three decades before he was elected Bowie’s first Black mayor three years ago, Tim Adams started a government-contracting company that now employs hundreds of workers. He contends his experience in business, procurement, and overseeing a municipality give him insight into making sure businesses owned by minority members, women and people with disabilities get a fair shake in state contracts and investing state pension funds.

We ask Adams about his plans for changing how Maryland collects corporate taxes and what kinds of investments it makes.
