A Broward County native, Dr. Osgood has served as a minister, social worker and teacher in Broward County for the past 20 years. In 2012 Dr. Osgood was elected to the School Board of Broward County to represent District 5 by 70% of the voters.

Dr. Osgood has been recognized by her peers as a true community leader. She is the former public policy chair for both the Broward County and State of Florida branches of the American Association of University Women. She has served four years as a member of the Substance Abuse Advisory Board for Broward County, two years on the CRA Advisory Board for the City of Fort Lauderdale and the Board of Directors for the Broward Coalition for the Homeless. She is the former vice chair of the Broward County Housing Council. In 2013, Dr. Osgood became the First Female Chaplain for the City of Fort Lauderdale Police Department.

A graduate of Fort Lauderdale High School, Dr. Osgood earned both a Master’s and Doctoral Degree in Public Administration from Nova Southeastern University.

Brinkworth is a third generation Broward County resident and has lived in District 3 since 1982. She is a proud product of Broward County Schools, having attended Lauderhill Paul Turner Elementary, Bethune Elementary, Rogers Middle School, Hollywood Hills High School and Stranahan High School.

Brinkworth’s community involvement includes having served as the chair of the City of Fort Lauderdale’s Education Advisory Board, as a member of the Broward County Public Schools District Advisory County, and former PTA President at Bayview Elementary. During her time on the Education Advisory Board Heather attended Student Success Opportunity School meetings in the community, and encouraged the members to take an active role in education issues.

ATTENTION MIRAMAR OFFICERS AND SERGEANTS BARGAINING UNIT … Late this afternoon the Broward PBA became aware of language that has not been incorporated into the proposed collective bargaining agreement. This language is only related to Article 29 at this time. We were not able to resolve this discrepancy with the City at this late hour. Unfortunately, we cannot proceed with the ratification vote until this issue is clarified. I apologize if this has caused any inconvenience.

Brothers and Sisters in Law Enforcement,

 

I am writing to ask for your support of the PBA in Tallahassee and Broward County and its President, Jeff Marano, for your own good and for the good of your family. Your future is inextricably linked to the representation you have in your corner when the going gets tough.

 

Those of us in law enforcement know how critical it is to have experienced, knowledgeable and proven representation during these difficult times. You need the experienced representation that provides you with the best legal services and your PBA has developed the political clout to protect you and insures you a better job, life and future.

 

As president of the largest municipal police union in our great nation, I urge you to vote the PBA Way.

 

Fraternally,

Patrick J. Lynch
