Sam Adolphsen

Policy Director

America is the greatest country in the world because of the free spirit and strong work ethic of our people--not because of our government.

About Sam

Sam Adolphsen is the Policy Director at the Foundation for Government Accountability, where he leads FGA’s policy team and focuses on sponsor education to advance FGA’s research and policy efforts.

Prior to joining FGA, Sam served as vice president of Rockwood Solutions and as chief operating officer at the Maine Department of Health and Human Services. He holds both a Bachelor of Business Administration and Master of Business from Husson University.

Sam first experienced the value of work while harvesting blueberries and helping his dad fish for baby eels as a means of supplemental income. He quickly learned that work is not a chore, but is an opportunity to learn a new skill, add value to a family, and experience purpose. Sam has testified before Congress and several state legislative committees. His work has been featured in the Federalist, National Review Online, Fox News, Fox Business News, the Daily Caller, and the Washington Times.

Sam enjoys coaching t-ball and is a fan of the New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox. He lives with his wife and three children in Hope, Maine.

At FGA, we don’t just talk about changing policy—we make it happen.

By partnering with FGA through a gift, you can create more policy change that returns America to a country where entrepreneurship thrives, personal responsibility is rewarded, and paychecks replace welfare checks.
