A third candidate will be contesting the Belize Rural South (BRS) (Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker) constituency in the upcoming General Elections set for November 11, 2020. He is Caye Caulker resident and businessman Thomas Greenwood Jr. who is running under the Belize People’s Front party (BPF).
The BPF’s candidate vows to use his constituency allowance to start a micro-grant program to provide people with a small subsidy allowance. He highlighted that currently area representatives are taking these funds and not necessarily helping their constituents. Under Greenwood, there will be a farming program for people to grow their own food, and he will seek funds to invest in a factory to manufacture goods and by-products from what is being planted.
In his manifesto, Greenwood said he will travel overseas to attract industries to BRS. He also hopes to engage in negotiations and establish agreements with financial institutions to provide loans to small businesses. The plan also calls for business and financial management workshops, along with the empowerment of people in the community for the benefit of BRS and the country.Click here to read the rest of the article in the San Pedro Sun
