Members from the Progressive Labour Party offer their condolences on the passing of Mr. Egmont Brown.
MP Kim Sawn JP, MP
I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Mr. Egmont Brown.
Mr. Brown was a man who commanded respect when you were in his presence. He had a magnetic personality, and his acumen as a businessman and a Barber encouraged men to gravitate towards his establishment.
Mr. Egmont Brown stood tall in the St. George’s Community as a voice of reason with a far- reaching political influence that was respected across the political divide & appreciated at the highest political office in Bermuda.
As a PLP Stalwart, Mr. Brown was a fierce advocate that all eligible voters need to be registered, in fact - there was a standard rule in his Barbershop: “only registered voters could discuss politics in his Barbershop.”
On behalf of the members of St. Georges West and indeed all the members of St. Georges we extend our sincere condolences to the family of Mr. Brown.
MP Renee Ming JP, MP
I join my colleague MP Kim Swan in extending my condolences to the family of Mr. Egmont “REGGIE” Brown.
Growing up in St George's I often heard about the infamous Mr. Brown and his barbershop where politics was always a hot topic. St Georgians, young and old in some way or the other encountered Mr. Brown. Whether you went to the barber shop or patronized the clothing store, you were bound to hear about the importance of voting. Mr. Brown was an advocate for ensuring people were registered to “exercise their right to vote.”
Mr. Brown was a proud PLP member. He was an essential part of Constituency One’s machinery and was never afraid to show his allegiance.
On behalf of the PLP Constituency One branch, we send our heartfelt condolences to the Brown family during this difficult time, and we thank you for his service.
Deputy Premier & Minister of Transport – The Hon Walter H. Roban, JP, MP
I remember Mr. Brown as a proud St Georgian and stalwart of the PLP’s work in the parish. As a younger member of the party, I recall him as a key figure on the ground in the community which would contribute to the success achieved before 1998 by Jennifer Smith and later Leon Jimmy Williams for the Party in St. Georges.
