Osmond, Pamela Ramsay

Summary

Pamela Osmond was a once only candidate for parliament. That was in 1973 when she represented the Australia Party in the New South Wales Legislative Assembly election for Wagga. Pamela Osmond campaigned strongly on the paramount importance of environmental controls to ensure that resources were preserved for future generations. On a local level, she described the Wagga saleyards and the Wagga tip as "civic disgraces". She also stressed that decentralisation was one of the greatest challenges facing Australia, and that the Australia Party believed in the creation of new states.
