Pamela Rosen 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.

Lampitt was elected to the Assembly on November 8, 2005, filling the seat of fellow Democrat Mary Previte, who did not run for re-election and had held the seat in the Assembly since 1998.[1] Lampitt serves in the Assembly as chair of the Women and Children Committee, vice-chair of the Financial Institutions and Insurance Committee, and the Appropriations Committee.[2]

In 2007, Lampitt was the lead sponsor of the Comprehensive Statewide Transfer Agreement[3] that allows community college students to "seamlessly" transfer credits to four-year public universities.[4][5] The law is commonly known as "the Lampitt law".[6]

An 18-year resident of Cherry Hill, New Jersey, Lampitt was elected to the Cherry Hill Township Council in 2003 after serving on the township Zoning Board.[7] 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.[8] 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.[9] She graduated from Johnson & Wales University with a degree in Culinary Arts and Management.[7]

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 and her husband, Charles, have two children, a daughter, Ilene, and a son, Andrew.
