Pam Hemminger

Mayor Pam Hemminger with her family in Chapel Hill, North Carolina
I moved to the Triangle area over 30 years ago with my husband, Brad. We chose Chapel Hill to be our home because we loved the sense of community and the beauty of the Town.


Since that time, we have raised our four children and built strong relationships here through our involvement with sports, the schools, the university and community organizations.

I bring a unique set of qualifications to the office of mayor – including real-world business and financial management and a wide-ranging community leadership experience.


As a leader, I have a proven track record of collaboration, bringing everyone to the table, helping organizations become financially sustainable and getting things done.
