Letter: Pam Hemminger is dedicated to service

Editor’s Note: The authors of this letter, the Rev. Robert Campbell and David Caldwell, are the president and project manager of the Rogers-Eubanks Neighborhood Association, respectively. Campbell is also the president of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro branch of the NAACP. This letter is a personal endorsement — neither organization endorses candidates.


We are writing this letter today to express our unreserved support of Pam Hemminger for mayor of Chapel Hill. We have had the opportunity to work with Hemminger during her term as Orange County commissioner as well as several boards and task forces. We have experienced firsthand her dedication to the governments she serves, as well as their citizens.

Hemminger believes that Chapel Hill must continue to become a more open-hearted, generous and prosperous city. She understands that while the mayor and council have an obligation to ensure economic growth, they have an equal obligation to ensure this growth is sustainable. Hemminger fundamentally believes in community outreach and she strives to bring the opinions of all citizens into council chambers.
