Lawrence 'Laurie' Broderick
Former State Minister, Jamaica

Lawrence ‘Laurie’ Broderick was a Jamaican lawyer, politician, and a former State Minister.

Career

Laurie Broderick, an Attorney-at-law and a former Army captain, served as State Minister of Telecommunications and Mining in the former Bruce Golding-administration.

He delivered a surprising 227-vote win over the People’s National Party (PNP)’s Horace Dalley in the 2007 general election; securing the North Clarendon seat for the Jamaica Labour Party (PLP). However, in the 2011 General Election, he lost the seat to Mr. Dalley by nearly 200 votes. In 2016, Broderick switched allegiance to the PNP and became a member of Mr. Dalley’s campaign team.

Broderick was from a political family. His father, Dr. Percival Broderick, was a member of the PNP and served as MP for North East Clarendon from 1949 – 1989 and Senator from 1993-1997. His brother, Percival Junior, represented the JLP and was MP for North Central Clarendon between 1972 and 1989.

Death

Broderick died on 4 September 2019 after battling illness for some time.
