Mayor Pam Hemminger

& Town Manager Maurice Jones


September’s gathering of the Friends of the Downtown welcomes Mayor Pam Hemminger and Town Manager Maurice Jones as our speakers. Maurice Jones transitioned to become Chapel Hill’s Town Manager on August 20th, taking over from Roger Stancil who retired after 12 years of service. Maurice Jones comes to us from Charlottesville, VA, where he was City Manager since 2010 and Assistant City Manager prior to that. We look forward to hearing from both our Mayor and new Town Manager, and to a lively Q&A session following their talks.

This month’s gathering of the Friends will take place on the second floor of the Franklin Hotel. Coffee and conversation begin at 9:30, News of the Downtown, including comings and goings (but more importantly rumors) will begin promptly at 10 a.m. Meetings are free and open to the public.
