Hyland Smith, PLP Stalwart Councilor, loved the PLP. When the party lost in 2017, he was the Branch Chair of the PLP in Bimini and he took it hard. He set out though almost immediately with this team to rebuild the Bimini branch from scratch and sought a new representative to carry the banner for the PLP. Sadly that was not the case and he did not live to see his dream fulfilled. However, the people of Bimini and the PLP hierarchy led by Philip Brave Davis and Chairman Fred Mitchell remembered him and turned out in full force to pay tribute to him at a service at the Anglican Church in Bimini on Saturday 1 May 2021. Rest in peace brother.
