Graves Admits He Was No Choir Boy

Adam Graves, a candidate for the Coeur d'Alene City Council, admits he was wild as a youngster and has a laundry list of tickets related to speeding to prove it. But he said he's cleaned up his act since the mid-90s. Hucks Online received an email that detailed the list of Adam's violations from a Berry Picker, mostly minor. In response, he told Hucks: "i was a wild kid until i got in trouble at 21 and changed my ways pretty fast. ... some of the older ones from back then someone was using my name, hence the dismissed,  since then I've just got speeding tickets as i'm a fast-german car freak... but alas, i had to give those up and i'm down to 76 bmw 2002 and a 76 vw bus... neither is fast. but both are fun. i bet edinger got rides home from the police in the 50's when he was 21." You can see the list of tickets here. You can read another quote from Adam below. (Courtesy photo: Here's what Adam drives around now)

Question: Does Adam's history of tickets change your view of his as a candidate for the Coeur d'Alene council? And/or: Were you wild as a kid?

"My younger years actually give me a better perspective for our youth's needs in the city growing up as a skateboarding teenager with little positive options and lots of time. This is one of the reasons why I am a big supporters of the boys and girls club and entrenched in improving schools and their newly expanded magnet curriculum. If you do not learn from your past your are destined to repeat and fail. I always improve and never look back. I think it's a non-issue but, i knew someone would dig it up. Choir boy I am not -- Adam Graves.
