Mayor Daniel Guerrero says NO to Candidate Debate

On February 16, 2018, a press release issued by Reef Radio/TV and The San Pedro Sun was printed, informing readers about their plans for hosting a mayoral debate. They stated that invitations were extended to both UDP Mayoral Candidate Daniel Guerrero and PUP Mayoral Candidate André Pérez and that the debate would be held on Monday, February 26th. The candidates were asked to confirm participation by February 14th. Although Pérez confirmed his attendance, Guerrero did not respond. However, the Mayor went on record while on the Reef Radio/TV that he categorically would not participate in the debate. He reiterated his stance on Nomination Day on February 21st where he told his constituents, “I want to make it clear here, in front of everybody, that I’m not going to participate in the debate with André Pérez. The reason is because I don’t have nothing valuable to debate with him.”

Debate co-host, Eiden Salazar of Reef Radio/TV expressed his disappointment. “Over the last six years, we have worked hard to bring a platform to the people where they had the opportunity to hear candidates discuss and debate important topics, this is a vital part of the democratic process,” he commented. Tamara Sniffin of The San Pedro Sun also shared her disappointment, adding, “We had received many questions from the public that deserved to be answered by the candidates, such as transparency, fiscal responsibility, sustainable development, healthcare, traffic, and pollution. Our goal was to give the people the opportunity to ask these questions, unfortunately, that won’t happen now. Just as we made history with the first mayoral debate in 2012, this too will be one for the history books. It feels like our hard work for political progress on the island has taken a step back.”
