The Hon. Samantha Nicole Marshall, MP
Cabinet Minister, Antigua and Barbuda

Samantha Nicole Marshall is an Antiguan politician, parliamentarian and Cabinet Minister. Marshall is the current parliamentary representative for St. Mary's South for the Antiga and Barbuda Labour Party.

Career

A member of the Bar Association in Antigua and Barbuda, Ms. Marshall owns her own law firm, Stapleton Chambers in St John’s. She has established a reputation as one of the island’s premier attorneys, and has spent years helping members of her community.

As a member of the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party, Samantha believes it is her duty to the constituency of Saint Mary’s South to fulfill her ambition to help enrich the lives of Antiguans and Barbudans. She believes that with each decision a government makes; with each step it takes; and with each thought it processes, it should do so in the fulfillment of the objective to improve the lifestyle of each of its citizens. Not only does Government have an obligation to provide and make available educational opportunities to all, it equally has an obligation to create opportunities for sustainable employment; proper health care and to have programmes in place for development of communities and the State on a whole.

Recently, she has been very disturbed at the growing trend of massive utility disconnections throughout the land, poor health care standards, as well as inadequate education facilities and performance by our students. Women have been particularly vulnerable with many crimes against them having gone inefficiently and inadequately investigated. Samantha answered this call and in 2008 after a series of atrocious crimes against women joined with other women and formed the group “Women Against Rape” to fulfill the role of a support entity and an awareness group in an effort to help the victims and families cope with such traumatic incidents.

Marshall succesfully contested the St. Mary's South constituency in the 12 June 2014 general election defeating incumbent Hilson Baptiste (UPP). On 18 June 2014, she was appointed Minister of Social Transformation and Human Resource Development.

She retained her seat in the 2018 election and was appointed Minister of Social Transformation, Human Resource, Youth, and Gender Affairs Department on 22 March 2018
