McAdoo earned his B.A. in Business Administration from North Carolina Central University, Durham, and his J.D. from the Widener University School of Law in 2005. His professional experience includes working as a benefits administrator for four accounting firms, as a prosecutor in Forsyth County and currently practices with a nonprofit civil rights firm, serving persons with disabilities.
McAdoo's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
- Excerpt: "A major part in the quality of our children’s education is the need for dedicated teachers. It is difficult to see any dedication with legislation enacted that eliminates teacher’s tenure, terminates supplement for advanced degrees and continues a pay rate that is ranked 46th in the country. A stronger education system in North Carolina demands greater support for our dedicated teachers."
- Excerpt: "It is clear that in order for North Carolina to continue to be competitive, we must be serious in addressing our present needs in education to prepare our current and future workers for tomorrow. Our legislature should be determined to see that our greatest investments and resources should go to our future, our children."
Jobs and the economy
- Excerpt: "The General Assembly must understand that compassion for North Carolina families are detrimental in a shrinking labor market. Only when we effectively use our resources to effectively address job growth while recognizing the immediate needs of our citizens until our job market improves, will we see a brighter day for North Carolina families."
- Excerpt: "The fundamentals of true democracy requires the continued participation of the people. Despicable practices that we have seen in past, such as late night sessions and votes taken without proper public notice to allow North Carolinians the opportunity to exercise their First Amendment rights, are a threat to the principles of democracy that make our Country a leader for freedoms of all. With your support we will ensure your rights and freedoms guaranteed under the United States Constitution."
