News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda – Lateef Trott is the One Bermuda Alliance’s adopted candidate for constituency 5, Hamilton East. Lateef attended CedarBridge Academy before earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology from Cica-International University & Seminary. 

He’s also earned a Master’s Degree in Biblical Exposition and is presently studying for his Doctorate in the same subject.

An avid cricketer, Lateef has played for Bailey’s Bay Cricket Club for the past 15 years and has played in the annual Cup Match Cricket Classic, representing St George’s. He is also a former Bermuda cricket international.

As a teenager, Lateef began volunteering with King Edward VII Memorial Hospital’s Ambulance Service and Emergency Department and St John’s Ambulance. It was then he fell in love with the medical field.

He is currently employed by The Corporation of Hamilton as a Parking Enforcement Officer.

Lateef was raised in Harlem Heights so becoming a candidate for the area was an obvious choice for him: “Why not go back and give back to every resident who watched you grow up, watched you play cricket, supported you in ministry and corrected and loved you unconditionally?

“Why not go back and be a listening ear and be a consistent presence within the area that is overlooked. It’s important to give people the opportunity to be heard, and to not only see that you care, but feel it as well.”

Lateef encourages young people in Bermuda to become involved in politics: “We need more young strong men and women who are not afraid of being in the forefront armed with a desire to create a better Bermuda.

“Many young adults are willing to engage in politics because Bermuda needs participation, which is a fundamental part of citizenship. It is the process by which the young people of our generation can influence decision-making which affects their lives to bring about positive and meaningful change.”

Lateef is married and in his spare time he enjoys going on walks, travelling, going the gym and spending time with family.
