Now running in Constituency 36 – Sandys North – Jeff brings the same energy and enthusiasm to the challenge.

In the wake of the Covid-19 crisis and the cancellation of the cruise season, resident and businesses in the area have been hit hard and the time for new ideas and recovery is vital. The OBA brought the America’s Cup to Dockyard, but since 2017, nothing has been done to take advantage of the infrastructure that was created for the event.

Jeff Sousa and the OBA have the experience and the energy to revitalize Dockyard, Mangrove Bay and the whole of Sandys North.

Better education for a better Bermuda

As someone who has worked with young people all of his life, Jeff is concerned about the direction of education and the lack of commitment to technical education under the Progressive Labour Party. If elected he would campaign for technical education and for an independent education authority which would take the politics out of schools.
