Michael S. Browne hails from Sea View Farm and is rooted in the villages and communities that make up All Saints West. His life’s mission, passion and purpose is guided by Habakkuk 2:2: “And the Lord answered me, and said, write the vision and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.”
Dr. Browne has made incredible strides in his tenure in government. He led the charge for the establishment of the Five Islands Campus of the University of the West Indies, constructed and established Sir Novel Richards Academy in under 3 months, secured a massive grant for the Model Early Childhood Center, and oversaw physical expansion and upgrades at 9 secondary and 6 primary schools.
In his constituency, he built the Model Early Childhood Center in Buckleys, started the 3rd-year running ASW Market Place, including the launch of 19 local businesses, renovated the Buckleys basketball and netball courts, renovated the Sea View Farm basketball court and built the seating. Dr. Browne is proudest of the permanent employment he’s directly secured and/or created for 390+ constituents, and countless scholarship opportunities for eager minds.
The first Sunday of each month from 3-5 pm, he’s held the All Saints West Monthly Live Facebook Town Hall (entering its 5th year in 2023) to generally connect with constituents sharing information and fielding questions and feedback.
His next level plans for All Saints West include even more vigorous lobbying for improved community roads, consistent community beautification, more consistent scheduling of water, and instillation of floodlights at Freeman’s Village Football Field. Dr. Browne is no stranger to raising millions for community projects. Next level community projects include a clinic and well-ness center in Sea View Farm – Light Foot, and a multi-purpose community development and outreach center on All Saints Road. According to Minister Browne, “the $10 million centre built in Buckley’s is just the beginning”.
In addition to undergraduate studies at the University of the West Indies, graduate studies at Pace and Columbia universities in New York City, Dr. Michael Browne also holds a Juris Doctorate and Doctor of Education from Howard University, Washington, D.C.
Dr. Browne nurtures a relentless passion for the development of the communities in All Saints West, fellow constituents, and broader nation building!
