Pamela R. Lampitt (born December 19 1960, Natick, Massachusetts) is an American Democratic Party politician, who serves in the New Jersey General Assembly, where she represents the 6th legislative district, having taken office on January 10 2006.

"Pamela Lampitt, Democrat, District 6 (Camden): A councilwoman in Cherry Hill, Lampitt won an open seat to replace long-time Assemblywoman Mary Previte, who did not seek reelection."] Lampitt serves in the Assembly on the Higher Education Committee (as Vice-Chair), the Commerce and Economic Development Committee and the Intergovernmental Relations Commission.

An 18-year resident of Cherry Hill Township, New Jersey, Lampitt was elected to the Cherry Hill Township Council in 2003 after serving on the township Zoning Board.

As a councilwoman, Lampitt worked to preserve open space in Cherry Hill. Lampitt worked on efforts to streamline town management and eliminate bureaucracy. She also led the effort to better coordinate economic development and encourage greater communication among the township’s businesses.

In the mid-1970s, Lampitt was inspired by her mother’s involvement with Aid for Cancer Research, a volunteer organization devoted to grants for vital medical research. As a result, Lampitt is active in the South Jersey Chapter of the City of Hope, a cancer research institution. Lampitt’s personal experience has made affordable and accessible quality healthcare, with an emphasis on expanding cancer research opportunities in the Garden State, one of the platforms of her candidacy for Assembly.

As a candidate for Assembly, Lampitt volunteered to take part in the “Fair and Clean Elections” pilot program, which is intended to rid the election process of the influence of special interest money. [ [http://www.njcleanelections.com/archive_2005.html 2005 New Jersey Fair and Clean Elections Pilot Project] , Fair and Clean Elections. Accessed September 29, 2007.] She was part of the first campaign team in state history to qualify as “clean candidates” under New Jersey’s Clean Elections program.

Lampitt was born in Natick, Massachusetts. [ [http://www.vote-smart.org/bio.php?can_id=58080 Assembly Member Pamela R. Lampitt] , Project Vote Smart. Accessed September 29, 2007.] She graduated from Johnson & Wales University with a degree in Culinary Arts and Management.

Lampitt has worked at the University of Pennsylvania for 25 years and currently is the General Manager for Conference Services. She has served on a number of steering committees on the campus, working on the Committee for Manufacturer Responsibility, which ensures university products are manufactured under fair labor standards.

Lampitt has been married to her husband, Charles, for 24 years. Their daughter, Ilene, 21, is a junior at Christopher Newport University, and their son, Andrew, 19, is a freshman at The College of New Jersey.
