I’m proud to support my friend Judge John Arrowood for the North Carolina Court of Appeals. John Arrowood currently serves on the North Carolina Court of Appeals, having been appointed by Governor Cooper to fill a vacancy in April 2017. He is eminently qualified for a full term on the court.
I know that John has the experience and integrity for the job. His extensive legal record, which includes serving on the Court of Appeals from 2007 to 2008, paints a picture of someone who is deeply committed to administering justice equally and fairly to all.
John is originally from rural Yancey County. He lost both of his parents at the young age of 15 and moved to Caldwell County to live with his brother, sister-in-law, and six-year-old niece. John was educated in North Carolina public schools and went on to become the first in his family to obtain a 4-year degree. After graduating from the UNC Chapel Hill School of Law, he was a staff member on the Court of Appeals and worked in private practice for nearly three decades. Throughout this time, John was involved in numerous community, civic, and religious organizations. His priority has always been serving the people of North Carolina. John was a member of the board of the North Carolina Railroad, the North Carolina Banking Commission, the North Carolina Rules Review Commission, and the North Carolina Arts Council.
Judge John Arrowood is exactly who we need on the North Carolina Court of Appeals. He is and has always been a fair and honorable judge, and his depth of experience would greatly benefit the Court and the people of North Carolina.
