New Brunswick women & municipal politics: Part Two

We continue our discussion around women in New Brunswick municipal politics with Tammy Rampersaud, former Town of Riverview councillor, and Melody Land, current Village of Hillsborough councillor.

Elsie Wayne became Saint John’s first female mayor in 1983. It was 2016 when Moncton first elected a female mayor, Dawn Arnold. Fredericton elected its first female mayor, Kate Rogers, in 2021.

Momentum is shifting when it comes to women running and holding elected offices in New Brunswick, but much work remains to break down stereotypes and create municipal structures that are more reflective of the province’s diversity.

The Jenna & Tosh Show is a co-production of Pickle Planet Moncton and The Podcast Hub, and is recorded & aired by Rogers TV New Brunswick.
