Brief Update! Jenn returning to NL Public Service!

Wow, looks like it has been 6 months since my last blog post. Interesting that my last post took note that the NL Provincial Liberals were running a trans candidate in the provincial election. Little did I know at the time that the NL NDP would also be running a trans candidate, and that the trans candidate would be me!

And oh my, what an election it was. A Covid-19 outbreak caused the last-minute cancellation of in person voting on polling day, and a series of what seemed to be daily ad-hoc changes to the election rules, that would eventually be challenged in court (cases still ongoing as of this writing).

 Those interested in my election campaign should check out as there are several archived videos there.

Meanwhile, I am excited to announce that I will be returning to the NL Department of Justice, in the near future, in a new role.  I will be doing Information Management work in a junior clerical-admin capacity.  Not necessarily my dream job,  but a big step in the right direction as I continue to build up my skills and experiences.  With this in mind, I will likely be drastically toning down my social media comments as they relate to provincial Government justice matters, as I do not want to be perceived to be in any type of conflict of interest. I will, however, continue to advocate for equal rights and equality for members of the trans community. That, is definitely never going to change.  

I will try to write blog posts more frequently going forward, but I can't guarantee anything!

Cheers to everyone,
