Patricia Adam (born 15 April 1953 in Saint-Cloud, Hauts-de-Seine) is a member of the National Assembly of France. She represents the Finistère department, and is a member of the Socialiste, radical, citoyen et divers gauche group.


Patricia Adam began her political career in 1989 as part of the team of Pierre Maille, who became the mayor of Brest after six years of control by the right. She became deputy mayor and councillor of Urban Community of Brest.

In 1998, she was elected General Counsel of the Canton of Brest-Saint-Marc when the General Council of Finistère swung to the left for the first time. Again, alongside Pierre Maille, President of the General Council, she became elected Vice-President of this Assembly.

She was first elected MP on 16 June 2002, the 12th Legislature (2002-2007), in the 2nd constituency of Finistère. She then stood down from municipal office to devote herself to this new national mandate, and that of Vice-President of the General Council. In the National Assembly, she is within the Socialist Group. She became a member of the Defense Committee of the National Assembly, and was delegate of the National Assembly to women's rights and equality of opportunity between men and women.

In 2004 she was re-elected to the General Council of Finistère and retained her post as its vice-president. In September 2006, Patricia Adam officially endorsed Dominique Strauss-Kahn to be the Socialist Party candidate for the 2007 presidential elections.

She was re-elected member on 17 June 2007 for the thirteenth legislature (2007-2012) defeating Jean-Yves Le Borgne (UMP) in the second round, with 55.51% of the vote. She is again a member of the defense committee.

In May 2008, she supported the candidacy of Bertrand Delanoë to the post of First secretary of the Socialist Party.
