Nassau, Bahamas  - To many the name Dion Smith may not ring a bell but if one were paying close attention to the recent elections this name would make a resounding ding in your mind. “Dynamite” Dion the people’s champ of Nassau Village was overwhelmingly elected to office by masses of that constituency; making his the third highest vote count in the PLP party. Though Dion is a political first timer this young maverick carries himself with an ere of an elder statesman. Mr. Smith was born on the 18th of October, 1975 in New Providence to the proud parents of Duke and Lillian Smith. He has been happily married to Rose Smith and together they have a seven year old son Dion (Jr) and a three year old daughter Aubrie.

 

“Dynamite grew up on the Island of New Providence; his family first lived on Solider Road next door to Obediah Smith his grand-father restaurant called The Golden Inn. He and his family are members of the Holy Cross Church which is also located on Solider Road. In New Providence he attended Uraih Mcphee Primary, C.W Sawyer Primary, St. John’s College Bahamas Baptist College and The College of the Bahamas before going to England for University. While in England he attended the University of Liverpool and BPP Bar School where he completed his professional qualifications to become an  attorney-at-law.

 

Over the past year, Dion D. Smith has proven to be a very ambitious young man and most of all very resourceful. During his run for office he was unfortunately a candidate without a constituency due to the boundary changes. Even while all looked bleak, Dion remained cool and confident until the light at end of the tunnel revealed its elf, and he was named the official candidate for Nassau Village.


Now that he has won his seat and is the Deputy Speaker of the House, h e attributes his victory to God and his close-knit family. He vows to be the best family man he can be to his immediate and newly added extended family of Nassau Village.
