Manuel Heredia Jr. endorsed as UDP Standard Bearer for Belize Rural South
On Saturday, November 23rd, the Belize Rural South (BRS) United Democratic Party (UDP) endorsed current Area Representative Honourable Manuel Heredia Jr., as their standard-bearer during an endorsement convention held at the Honourable Louis Sylvestre Sporting Complex in San Pedro Town. The event, which was almost thwarted by inclement weather, saw supporters from San Pedro and Caye Caulker Village joining the UDP family in support of Heredia. Present at the convention was Deputy Prime Minister, Honourable Patrick Faber, UDP Freetown Standard Bearer O.J. Elrington among the staff of The San Pedro Town Council and other invited guests.
Master of Ceremonies Gonzalo Rosado handed over the microphone to Mayor Daniel Guerrero shortly after 8PM for the welcome address. Guerrero sent a message to the Opposition, the People’s United Party (PUP), disregarding the allegations that the UDP is divided. “We are united more than ever before,” said Guerrero. “My Councillors and I are 1,000% in support of Heredia Jr. and we will win the next general elections.” He called out on the PUP regarding propaganda against Standard Bearer Heredia and the SPTC. “They have not seen our ‘Red Machinery’ for the 2020 general elections,” he said. Guerrero added that his party has honest leaders who truly help the people. According to him, the UDP who is currently running the government, has done more than any former PUP administration. He said that his party has and will continue to deliver for Ambergris Caye and the infrastructure to support the rapid growth of the island will continue. Some of the upcoming projects he briefly mentioned was the pavement/cementing of additional streets, and addressing the situation of the streets in the San Mateo Sub-division, and the possibility of a second bridge by the Boca del Rio area. Guerrero said that all of this can only be possible with the hardworking UDP. Click here to read the rest of the article in the San Pedro Sun
