Jean Hamilton is the kind of person we need on the County Commissioners. She is an experienced professional with background in economics as well as mindfulness and interpersonal relations. She has served effectively on the Chapel Hill/Carrboro School Board and so understands the complexities of allocating public funds. She is a deep thinker and problem solver. Jean will work hard to make sure our county’s services work for everyone. I am delighted that Jean is running for this important office.
Minister Robert L. Campbell
I, without reservation, endorse Jean Hamilton for Orange County Commissioner. Jean believes in making decisions based on facts and is a strong supporter of schools, health care, and the overall well-being of the citizens of Orange County. I believe she will work hard to spend our tax dollars wisely.
Jean has all the qualities to be an effective leader in our County – experience, integrity, commitment and vision. I am excited to see her running for the office of Orange County Commissioner as I believe she will represent diverse community interests while forging important coalitions for progressive change.
I can highly recommend Jean Hamilton as a candidate who will help the future of both young and older residents in our county and make a positive difference in the lives of many. The ability to listen and collaborate with others is one of her strengths. Through her work as a social worker, she truly understands the problems the residents of Orange County face and can find solutions through working with others. Her knowledge as an economics PhD will also guide how to accomplish these solutions in a fiscally responsible way.
So happy to support Jean! I can’t think of anyone better to lead the community in this capacity.
Jean Hamilton is a bridge builder. She is skillful at pulling together disparate ideas as well as facilitating communication among people with differing perspectives and agendas. She understands and cares about people, and puts that caring into action with intelligence and sensitivity. Jean’s ability to listen deeply to both her colleagues and constituents makes her an exceptional candidate for the Board of Commissioners.
Renee is an excellent commissioner. Amy and Jean would bring a welcome common sense / data driven voice to the board. These three women will also help our board regain a respectful and collaborative relationship with the public and other public boards as well as a more focused approach to the issues that face us.
I can’t think of a better candidate for Orange County Commissioner! Jean’s wisdom, compassion, dedication, and thoughtfulness would be a great asset in addressing the needs of all the citizens of Orange County.
Jean Hamilton has a clear understanding of how board of commissioner decisions affect our economy and the lives of all residents. She lived up to her campaign promises as a CHCCS school board member, and I look forward to her bringing that same accountability, common sense and pragmatism to the BOCC.
