Bryan Joseph Adams (born November 1962) is a Republican former member of the Louisiana House of Representatives for District 85, which encompasses Gretna in suburban Jefferson Parish and Terrytown, where Adams is the former long-term volunteer fire chief.
In his announcement of candidacy in 2011, Adams cited his priorities as fighting crime, flood protection, tackling erosion of the wetlands, and support for emergency services. He pledged accessibility to constituents. In a low-turnout primary election held on October 22, 2011, Adams defeated his lone opponent, fellow Republican Stephen Leonard, 3,924 (57.2 percent) to 2,948 (42.8 percent).
Adams is a graduate of River Oaks Academy in Belle Chasse, Louisiana. He holds certificates in firefighting from federal, state and local governments through Louisiana State University and the United States Department of Homeland Security. Adams is single and has two adult children.
Adams succeeded Republican Representative Ricky Templet of Gretna, who did not seek reelection but instead was elected to the Jefferson Parish Council. Adams resigned from the House in 2016 and was succeeded by an Independent, Joseph Marino.
