LETTERS - Women's centre applauds Town's top job appointment.

The Gateway Status of Women is applauding the appointment of Nadine Osmond as town manager at the Town of Port aux Basques. Ms. Osmond is the first ever woman to fill the top job at the town hall in Port aux Basques. This move sends a clear message to any aspiring girl or woman that strong leadership roles are attainable and achievable; that glass ceilings are meant for breaking.

Haley Osmond, executive director at the Gateway Status of Women, said women like Nadine Osmond are paving the way for other women and girls who are interested in lead roles.

“We’re delighted to have a woman at the helm at the Town Hall in Port aux Basques. Nadine is a strong, and intelligent woman who is committed to growth of the municipality,” said Haley Osmond.

Nadine Osmond was born and raised in Channel. She lived and worked in St. John’s as a younger adult and is a single mother. She returned to her hometown 11 years ago to finish raising her son and be closer to her family in the community that she loves.

Her face has been a familiar one around town since her return. Nadine Osmond has been and continues to be an avid volunteer in her community. Through her interest in history and the arts, she has worked tirelessly over the years with the Southwest Coast Historical Society, the Race to the Sea Committee, the Port aux Basques and Area Chamber of Commerce, the Sou’Wester Folk Art Society, the Come Home Year 2015 and 2020/22 Committees and the Astrolabe Days Festival, to name a few.

Nadine Osmond brings to her new position financial experience from her town clerk role of over the past two years, and administrative assistance as well. Ms. Osmond also worked at the Town-owned Bruce II Sports Centre for a couple of years.

The Gateway Status of Women is thrilled with Nadine Osmond’s appointment.

“We have the utmost confidence that Ms. Osmond will be a great fit for the management chair at the town hall. We fully support the decision of Mayor Brian Button and his council for appointing her,” said Haley Osmond.
