The Jamaica Labour Party is saddened by the passing of former Mayor of May Pen Milton Brown and former JLP Councillor for the Fairy Hill Division and former President of the Jamaica Football Federation Hugh Perry.

Party Chairman Robert Montague stated in a release that the contributions of both men at the Local and National level are immeasurable and Jamaica has lost two of its most committed and faithful minds in local governance. 

Milton Brown

Milton Brown, who was the Councillor for the Mineral Heights Division in South Eastern Clarendon secured approximately 60% of the votes in his division in the 2016 Local Government Elections. He is remembered as a strategic organizer and down to earth representative. 

Brown was also a long-standing advocate for the rights and regulation of squatters and was pleased with the government honouring commitments he made in the 2016 Local Government debates to do more to make the registration and titling process more accessible.

The party also declared that it was pleased that Mr Perry, who served as JFF president between 1981 and 1983 was honoured with National Awards last year before his passing. 

“His work as a Councillor, Lay Magistrate and JFF President has helped to make many persons across Portland and by extension Jamaica a place of Hope and it is fitting that he was nationally recognized before his passing;” Montague added. 

The Chairman went further to state that the party will make more announcements regarding the commemorative steps to be taken in gratitude for the contribution of both men.
