PLP pays tribute to ‘tourism ambassador’
The Progressive Labour Party has paid tribute to former St George's councillor Clarence Ross Smith who died this week.
Mr Smith, who was the founder of the Bermudian Heritage Association, was 70 when he passed away.
PLP senator Renee Ming extended the party's condolences to Mr Smith's family.
She said: “A graduate of Bermuda's famous Technical Institute, he will be remembered for opening St. George's first laundromat.
“Mr. Smith, who was first cousin to Dame Jennifer Smith, was a former PLP St George's Branch Chair who also served on the Corporation of St George's for many years as both a common councillor and alderman.
“In recent times Mr Smith was a tourism ambassador for St George's and Bermuda. He had a history and passion for serving his community.
“He will be sadly missed by St George's parishioners.”
