Pamela "Pam" Cameron (born 30 December 1971; previously Lewis, née Brown) is a Democratic Unionist Party politician in Northern Ireland who was elected to the Northern Ireland Assembly for the South Antrim constituency in 2011.
Lewis was elected to Antrim Borough Council in 2005 and was elected as the Council's first woman Mayor in 2010. Prior to her election to the Assembly, she was the constituency office manager for the politician Sammy Wilson. 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."
Her first marriage ended in 2011; she subsequently married Michael Cameron, a Northern Ireland civil servant. The relationship was the subject of a Press Complaints Commission complaint.[clarification needed]
