The countdown to the June 7 by-election is on for the four candidates running in two constituencies.

The One Bermuda Alliance announced its candidates this week. Justin Mathias and Scott Pearman will run for the OBA.

Mr Mathias will run in Warwick North East against the Progressive Labour Party’s Curtis Dickinson. Mr Pearman will contest Paget East with Curtis Richardson.

Mr Pearman, 46, is a lawyer and director of the Family Centre. Mr Mathias, 25, is the deputy chairman of the Opposition. He also heads up the OBA’s youth wing and was appointed senator last year.

Mr Pearman has served as the party’s chairman in Paget and Mr Mathias has canvassed for the OBA in the past two elections.

Opposition Leader Jeanne Atherden said the party is in the “process of rebuilding”.

“This by-election, and in general, the focus of the OBA is to strengthen our elected team with new ideas, skills and attributes, which will expand our ability to serve you, our constituents,” she said.

She also noted that both candidates were “born and raised in the parishes that they now want to serve”.
