With An Asterisk

And while he may still be getting his allowance, Minister Perez isn't getting any break from his constituents on San Pedro. With eight thousand voters, it's the third largest constituency in the country, and it's also been hardest hit by the major decline in tourism.

And that's why at 100 days, this area rep and Minister of Blue Economy and Civil Aviation says he hasn't delivered on his promised 100 day, 10 point list. He pose to Jules Vasquez via zoom:

Belize Rural South Area Representative Hon. Andre Perez reflects on first 100 days in office

The Honourable Andre Perez, reflected on his first 100 days as minister of government, touching on challenges and some of his accomplishments outside of the initial plan of action (manifesto) planned for the first three months. Perez told The San Pedro Sun that his party expected to find a crippled national economy, but not to the degree they did once they sat behind the desk. He said it was unprecedented and took longer than expected for his government to get into action and adequately help the people.

The Area Representative said he wanted to do more and feels comfortable with the progress so far. One of the plans for BRS not mentioned in his manifesto was the Mar de Tumbo flu clinic improvement, which tends to COVID-19 patients. The clinic had been affected by rains causing the grounds to flood. “In the very first two weeks of my administration, we embarked on cleaning and filling it out and brought it back to a place suitable for working and continue testing,” said Perez. Perez said opening a call center on the island is another accomplishment that aims to generate around 200 jobs on Ambergris Caye. The minister stated that his next project deals with engaging Belize Water Services to provide potable water to areas where residents did not access it. Perez said that residents in the San Mateo, San Pedrito, and Eiley Subdivisions are being connected to this service.
