OBA announces John Seymour as candidate for Constituency 16, Pembroke East Central

John Seymour is the One Bermuda Alliance candidate for Constituency 16, Pembroke East Central. Along with being a talented musician who has graced many stages both in Bermuda and internationally, John is an entrepreneur who is passionate about making a positive difference in Bermuda.

The father of one is most passionate about Bermuda possessing a robust and stimulating education system that all students, no matter their career aspirations, can thrive in.

“There are too many young people who are feeling displaced in today’s workforce, who feel that they don’t fit because of lack of opportunities available to them. This can no longer be the case. We must empower them and give them hope.”

“The escalation of violent crimes in Bermuda is past worrying, particularly bladed articles and gun violence. How many times can we offer our condolences to bereaved families. Where is the action across the community? We cannot allow lawlessness to take over our beautiful island home. We cannot afford for any more families to endure unnecessary pain.”

John adds that another issue which needs immediate attention in Bermuda is the escalating cost of living: “It’s scary how many people are suffering in silence, especially our seniors. They have worked too hard to have to be scrounging in their golden years because they have to ensure that they can afford to buy groceries. It’s just not right.”

A former student of Warwick Academy and CedarBridge Academy, John is currently completing a BA with the highly regarded Berklee College of Music. He is also an awardee of the Ross Blackie Talbot, Bermuda Musical & Dramatic Society (BMDS) and Peter Leitner Arts scholarships.

He is also the Minister of Music at First Church of God North Shore.

In his spare time, John enjoys reading books and educating himself in world history. He also enjoys playing golf, piano, volunteering, teaching music, cooking, exercise.

John cites one of his greatest accomplishments, along with his brother Jesse, as taking care of his late senior parents, Gegory and Jennifer.
