Reuben Theodore Meade (born 7 March 1954)[1] is a retired politician from Montserrat who served as the island’s first Premier between 2010 and 2014. He previously served as Chief Minister between 1996 and 1999 and 2009 to 2010. A member of the Movement for Change and Prosperity (MCAP), he previously led the now-defunct National Progressive Party.

He launched his election campaign (for the early general election of 8 September 2009) on 28 July 2009.[2] His party won the majority, garnering six of the nine seats up for grabs, while former chief minister Dr Lowell Lewis and two other independents took the remaining seats.[3] Meade was congratulated by his political opponent, Lewis, and said that the revival of the economy of Montserrat would be his main priority.[4]

The 2014 elections saw the defeat of the MCAP. Meade finished seventh in the vote total, retaining his seat in the Legislative Council.
