Political newcomer and longtime Meridian resident Adam L. Nelson hopes to win a seat on the Meridian City Council.
If elected, Nelson wants to focus on growth, traffic and be a voice for Meridian. He is running against incumbent and current council president Treg A. Bernt.
Nelson, the Managing Partner at Meridian Speedway, is trying his hand in politics because he believes it’s the “duty of all citizens” to get involved.
“Speaking for the citizens of Meridian is pretty important,” he said. “We all rely on our city council when we have small businesses in Meridian, especially old businesses. And, it’s just sometimes some of those seats need to be filled with different demographics of leaders,”
