Liz Hair was a true trailblazer in local politics who impacted both women and men, including me. I still remember how supportive she was of my candidacy when I first ran for office at the age of 26, which was truly an honor. Her many firsts in Mecklenburg, as founder of the Democratic Women of Mecklenburg County, first female County Commissioner and first woman to chair the County Commission will forever be a part of this City’s rich history. Our community has lost one of the greats, who helped Charlotte become what it is today. My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this very sad time.
