"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. . . . 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. I can never thank her enough for her tireless efforts to create a more vibrant downtown. Her efforts helped pass common sense reform of sign ordinances, the creation of more parking by engaging long disinterested landowners and the timely adoption of the Sunday Brunch ordinance."
—Scott Maitland, owner of Top of the Hill Distillery

"She supports walkability and bicycle routes, while working to increase bicycle safely. Her support for Sierra Club values like open space, preserving the tree canopy and rural buffer, and good management of stormwater has been specific in a number of plans for the town. . . . Her leadership on water pollution, use of graywater, and stormwater management has been impressive in Chapel Hill and the Jordan Lake Watershed. She understands that one of the principles of smart growth is density along transportation corridors." 2017
—Orange-Chatham Sierra Club
