U.S. Rep. Alma Adams went “undercover” Wednesday at Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont in Charlotte. It was part of “Undercover Congresswoman” the Greensboro Democrat plans to do monthly. Similar to her predecessor Rep. Mel Watt’s “Trading Places” program, it’s designed to better acquaint her with jobs in the 12th District. Jim Morrill
