COMPASSIONATE & DRIVEN
Hello and welcome to my page. My name is Adela Wisdom and I am running for US Representative 3rd District of Missouri. I live in Williamsburg in Callaway County. I am married to Aaron Wisdom. I am a Constitutional Republican.
I am a federally recognized Native American from the Cherokee Tribe of Talequah Oklahoma. I am 42 years old. I was born at Stanford University Hospital in Palo Alto, California on March 7, 1977. I moved to Hawaii with my brother and mother. Watching my mom work, go to school, raise my brother and me, make time for church, all while being a single mother just to be able to support us. Not to mention getting into the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. I watched my mother become one of the first women to be part of the IBEW and become one of the first women lineman in Hawaii.
“I still remember the first time I realized what my mom did for a living ...it was the day I saw her in a commercial on top of a telephone pole, at that moment I knew what the value of hard work and what being persistent meant.”
At age 12, I moved to San Diego, California to live with my father, step-mom, and two half brothers. While in San Diego I was exposed to my extended family. Both of my parents come from very large families. My parents are both 1 of 9 siblings. I have 3 half brothers and 3 step brothers. I am a proud Auntie to 13 nieces and nephews. I also have 6 sister-in-laws and 15 nieces and nephews on my husbands side.
I come from a military family. I am a strong supporter of our 2nd Amendment. My grandfather, in spite of only a 3rd grade education, was a WWII decorated Veteran who fought in Normandy on D-day and was awarded a Silver Star, 2 Bronze Stars, a Combat Medical Badge, and a Purple Heart. My father and Uncle were in the Army and my sister-in-law is also an Army Veteran. I am extremely proud of my family's military service.
I graduated from Grossmont Community College in 2007 with my Associates in Science Degree for Business Administration, and then transferred to San Diego State University to study finance. During my senior year, tragedy struck. I was in a serious bicycle accident that left me critically injured and unable to walk. Unable to return to work or school, I turned to becoming an advocate for others. My accident left me unable to walk with out assistance caused me serious pain, and I hated being on so many pain pills. This started me on the road to activism, and I work tirelessly for myself and others to be able to use alternative medicines.
I continued to work in the political arena. I have testified at County Board of Supervisors Meetings, City Council Meetings, Town Councils, and the Coastal Commission on issues ranging from a local Skate Park, the importance of Lifeguards, and safe access to cannabis. I was elected and sat on Linda Vista Town Council. I was an Adviser for San Diego City Council Medical Marijuana Task Force. I sat on Mayor Bob Filner's Medical Marijuana Board. I even had the privilege of attending and speaking at the United Nations UNGASS in New York regarding judicial reform.
Feeling blessed after my recovery I moved to American Samoa where I spent a year teaching. I taught High School mathematics focusing on Algebra 1 & 2; as well as educating Junior High students about the importance of Art- focusing on Art History, Art Appreciation, and Ceramics.
In 2014, while on my way to visit my Grandfather in Williamsburg, Missouri, he passed away. After my loss, I purchased his property and fell in love with the community and found my home in Callaway County. The values of the community resonate with my own.
Residing on 8 acres with a 5 acre lake I work hard on my home. I have spent the last six years homesteading and being self-sufficient. I am a farmer of many: I raise chickens, ducks, turkeys, and rabbits. I also grow and can all my own vegetables and fruits. I make my living selling my products at local farmers markets and road-sides.
Since moving to Missouri I have continued my activism. I worked tirelessly for the release of Jeff Mizanskey, and I testified on behalf at the capitol on HB 978 which successfully passed. I have also been working on sharing stories of fellow Missourians that were and have been arrested for non-violent cannabis cases like: David and Natalie DePriest. I'm very eager and excited to to work for the people of Missouri and to continue to advocate for the rights of others, especially for those without a voice.
I am running for office to be the change I want to see. Thank you for your support and VOTE. #VoteWisdom4Congress
