Hanover appears to have the most stylish Mayor in Jamaica.
Sheridan Samuels has proven himself to be an UpTop Boss when it comes on to looking dapper, whether he is sporting casual-wear of dressed up in his various designer suits.
The councillor of the Caldwell Division is a former national under-23 footballer, and many football pundits argue that he is one of the most brilliant strikers to emerge out of Rusea’s High School.
He has a flair for blending bright colours with his suits yet, still looking good and oh so masculine, a feat not many men are able to do.
Whether the 50-something councillor, is arguing points in the Hanover Municipal Corporation’s meeting room, watching football games at the Watson Taylor Park, or jetting off on a plane with Jamaica’s National Football team, or even playing a friendly game of dominoes with the young people in Lucea, or strolling around in Bigwell where he grew up, there can be no doubt he is always looking camera-ready.
Something more about this mayor, he is a top-notch cricketer in addition to being a baller. His nickname is “Worm”, a name he got whilst playing cricket in his childhood days when he was so tiny that when walking into the pitch, dragging his bat behind him, spectators thought he looked like a little worm and tagged him with the moniker. The name stuck.
From afar, many see Worm, as gruff, but he is far from that – at least most of the time. He is in fact very amiable approachable and loves telling and hearing a good joke.
Attend one of his council meetings, and you will not only be well informed about Parliamentary procedures but will be well entertained.
