Pam Lewis (Pam Cameron) is a Democratic Unionist Party politician in Northern Ireland who was elected to the Northern Ireland Assembly for the South Antrim constituency in 2011.[2]

Lewis was elected to Antrim Borough Council in 2005 and was elected as the Council's first woman Mayor in 2010.[3] Prior to her election to the Assembly, she was the constituency office manager for the politician Sammy Wilson.[4] Speaking about her election success, Pam said: “I thought I would do well but I did not think I would get to this stage. I know there are Roman Catholics who voted for me and that I have cross-community support. I hope that continues.”[1]

She left her husband in 2011 following an affair. She has subsequently married Michael Cameron, a NI Civil Servant. The relationship was the subject of a Press Complaints Commission complaint.[5]
