PLP veteran Smith dies
A long-serving Progressive Labour Party senator and MP has died, it was announced at the weekend.
Calvin Smith was also the island's first statistician and created the Government's Department of Statistics. Mr Smith was 87.
A spokeswoman for the PLP said the party “joins with the family of brother Calvin Smith in mourning his passing”.
Mr Smith, who was a Hamilton West MP in the 1980s, was also the campaign manager for the PLP in its historic 1998 General Election campaign, which saw the party form a government for the first time.
The spokeswoman added that Mr Smith “was a servant of the people who was dedicated to building a better, fairer Bermuda.
He said he hoped Mr Smith's “family and friends are comforted during this time of bereavement”.
