Pittsboro, N.C. -- Pamela Baldwin, a lifelong resident of Pittsboro, has filed to run for a seat on the Town Board. She is the first African American to run for the board in 30 years. (Isaiah Taylor ran successfully for re-election in 1975 and served until 1979.)

Baldwin, the daughter of the Late Rev. Lynn Baldwin, Sr. and Mrs. Ethel M. Baldwin, stressed that as a town commissioner she would represent the best interests of all residents of the area.

“I love this town and want to see it progress in ways that will be good for all of the people who live and work here and in the surrounding area,” she said. “I am especially interested in promoting positive economic development for the downtown and in working to bring in good jobs that will enhance the quality of life for everyone. I want to protect what makes this a special place and work to make it more viable for us all.”

Baldwin is a 1976 graduate of Northwood High School. She earned a B.A. in Political Science from North Carolina State University in 1986.

She is employed as a financial consultant/counselor at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. She has one daughter, Brandy L. Baldwin who has earned both Bachelor of Arts and Master of Science Degrees from North Carolina A& T State University and now serves as Project Coordinator for GEAR-UP, a Pre-College Initiative Program .

As a member of the Norman Clark Campaign Committee , she was a spokeswoman and assisted with his successful election to the Chatham County School Board in 2004.
