The Belize Rural South People’s United Party (PUP) slate launched their manifesto on Saturday, February 17th in front of Evelia Paz residence at the end of Barrier Reef Drive in San Pedro Town. As the 2018 Municipal Elections draw near, the event gave the opportunity to the aspiring candidates to present what they want to accomplish if they manage to be elected. Present at the launch was PUP Mayoral Candidate, André Pérez, the six councilor candidates and PUP Party Leader, John Briceño, who addressed a large crowd of supporters.

PUP, Mayoral Candidate, Andre Perez then shared a few words. “We are working hard for all the people of San Pedro Town. This PUP 7 has engaged in an active campaign like you haven’t seen for the past 15 years. We have heard all the issues that our people are going through and they are tired and ready for the change. This action plan that we present to you today, was not created by me and the councilors, it was created by all the islanders that shared issues affecting them and their families. We ask you, to give us the support on March 7th, and we promise you that within 60 working days we will present to you a comprehensive financial report for you all to know the state of affairs of this town.
