TO THE EDITOR:
Please re-elect Chapel Hill Mayor Pam Hemminger.
In my 22 years as a Chapel Hill small business owner, a mayor has never so quickly and adeptly found the common ground between vastly different constituencies. Her actions have resulted in real progress being made towards our community’s 2020 Comprehensive Plan goals.
On the “Community Prosperity and Engagement” front, Pam’s steadfast support for Launch Chapel Hill has resulted in Chapel Hill being selected as one of the Top 5 places for Entrepreneurs to live and launch by Entrepreneurship Magazine.
The creation of a thriving entrepreneurial community in Chapel Hill was seen as a pipe dream only five years ago, but now entrepreneurial companies are occupying formerly vacant spaces downtown and creating desirable jobs for our citizens as well as customers for our existing businesses.
