As has been a staple of past QVCOG Annual Dinner events, this year’s event recognized a regional public servant who exemplifies a commitment to their community and public service as a whole. Ms. Barbara Carrier, Mayor of Glen Osborne Borough and QVCOG Board President nominated Ms. Diane Vierling, Glen Osborne Borough Secretary for her many years of serving the Borough. The nomination was unanimously approved by the QVCOG Board of Supervisors at their September 20, 2023 meeting.
Ms. Diane Vierling, Glen Osborne Borough Secretary-Treasurer, will be celebrating 13 years of service to the community in November 2023. Without question, Diane is and has been the “face" of the Borough as she is the person most Glen Osborne residents have first contact with whether by phone call, email, or through an in person visit. It is not an uncommon site to see residents stop by the Borough office with their concerns/questions and leave with a helpful solution and a new friend. Diane directs the municipal traffic for all departments, commissions, and Borough Council. Per Glen Osborne Borough Mayor Barbara Carrier’s nomination email, “Diane is very respected by the community as someone who listens to inquiries and does her best to help solve situations with kindness and compassion.” In addition to serving Glen Osborne, Diane also works part-time for Sewickley Borough serving as the primary municipal contact for their Shade Tree Commission. Per an email from Sewickley Borough Manager Donna Kaib, “Although Diane’s work with Sewickley Borough in general is limited, I do want to say that she is a wonderful and pleasant person to work with. She is always willing to assist the public and help in any way possible. Her values and dedication to Glen Osborne and Sewickley Borough are unmeasurable.”
