Adams To Lead Black Caucus At NC General Assembly

Rep. Alma Adams of Guilford County will remain chairwoman of the North Carolina Legislative Black Caucus.

Adams announced Wednesday she was recently re-elected unanimously to the post. The Democrat has served in the House since
1994 and is also a co-chairwoman of the powerful House appropriations Committee.

Adams helped lead the fight toward approving a higher minimum wage in 2006. She also appeared in a television ad last spring on behalf of Gov.-elect Beverly Perdue to respond to questions raised by Perdue's chief rival about her commitment to civil rights legislation.

The caucus was comprised of nearly 30 members during the 2007-08
legislative session. The group works to promote legislation that benefits black citizens and others.
