St.maarten – “We feel positive based on the vibes we are getting from people,” says Wycliffe Smith, leader of the St. Maarten Christian Party. “We are anticipating that we will win at least two seats.”
Smith retired in 2014 after fourteen years as the pastor of the Baptist church in Philipsburg. Before that he was the Lt. Governor of Saba (from 1983 to 1989), a teacher, president of the University of St. Maarten (where he is still a board member), a teacher, an inspector and later the head of the education department. He wrote poetry and toured as the singer of a band in Europe. Now, Smith tries his hand at politics – from the pulpit to parliament. Why?
