PLP Extends Condolences To Farias Family

January 17, 2023

The Progressive Labour Party extended their condolences to the family of the late Dennis ‘Danny’ Farias.

A spokesperson said, “The Progressive Labour Party offers our sincere condolences to the family of Mr. Dennis [Danny] Farias. Mr. Farias was a PLP member and stalwart, who ran for elected office twice under the Progressive Labour Party banner.

“In 1993, he ran [alongside Richard Lynch], in May 1997 in a bye-election, and in 1998 [alongside Quinton Butterfield] in the UBP stronghold of Devonshire South. He was a fearless advocate for Bermuda fishermen and our fisheries.

“Mr Farias was always passionate about injustice anywhere he saw it in the community. With great courage he chose to fly the PLP banner in the UBP era and their stronghold at that time, especially as a white Bermudian representing Labour.

“In the years subsequent, he regularly has offered counsel and support to our government. We are ever thankful for his contributions to our community. The Progressive Labour Party extends our thoughts and prayers to Danny Farias’s family and friends at this difficult time and hope that they are comforted by these words.”
