McDaniel's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
Legislative/Judicial/Political Bullying vs. Participatory Government and Transparency
- Excerpt: "The term "greater good" has been overshadowed or even willfully ignored as merely idealistic and in its place we have the emergence of endless imagined communities and political interest groups that are only interested in their own agendas often times with no thought or concern for other communities that are notably adjacent in proximity and culture to them. No fear...I'm here! Objectivity, transparency, rationale analysis from both an economic and social welfare perspective and all else toward the greater good of North Carolina is indeed a "platform" I willing to stand on."
- Excerpt: "Bullying not only is rampant in our public and even private schools but a suffocating cloud hovering over city employees and some officials, judicial employees and most officials, and even paralegals, secretaries, assistants, and lawyers alike. Accountability should be the standard not a laughable politically correct statement fed to the general public to enhance public relations or a measure of damage control in the event of social injustice."
- Excerpt: "Ethics must be a major implement of NC law and government. The antics of our state, municipal and county officials is deplorable and we have become the mockery of national precedence. Again I offer...no fear. Tigress is here! Historically and markedly so, I don't change my "political platform" with the change in endorsement winds, and I think it's safe to say that I am not exactly the easily discouraged and quickly defeated target for bullying- of any sort. All sarcasm aside, I believe that my life, academic and community experiences have afforded me an unmatched resolve, humility, aptness, fortitude that is sure to prove to be an immeasurably progressive asset to the City of Greensboro residents, North Carolina citizens, and even the United States of America in whole."
