Newly elected San Pedro Town Council sworn in; PM Briceño attends the ceremony
Mayor-elect Gualberto ‘Wally’ Nuñez and his six councillors were sworn in on Monday, March 8th, during a short ceremony at the Ambergris Stadium. The swearing-in was carried out by Legal Counsel Eduardo Aguilar and Senior Justice of the Peace Evelia Paz. The occasion was also attended by the Prime Minister of Belize, the Honourable John Briceño, Area Representative and Minister of the Blue Economy and Civil Aviation, the Honourable Andre Perez, Minister of Health and Wellness (MOHW), the Honourable Michel Chebat, and a host of friends and family members.
After the signing, Mayor Nuñez addressed the audience. He indicated that the current situation is unspeakably awful on the island. “But one might fail to realize that San Pedro and its people have fought many battles in the past. Our people fight from the heart, but no fight has proven to be as disastrous to the very fabric of our society as the COVID-19 pandemic,” Nuñez said. “Along with my team, we will join forces with the private sector, governmental and non-governmental agencies to introduce plans and ideas in order to boost hope and improve the economic situation of our people.” Nuñez pledged to work tirelessly for islanders, and his administration will be transparent, pro-people, prudent, fair, responsible, and hard working.
Former Area Representative Patricia Arceo introduced Prime Minister Briceño, who indicated that it is time to bring back the island’s economy and work hard with Area Representative Perez and the new leadership in town. “We are going to get the job done, and we are going to make San Pedro again the number one spot in the country,” said Briceño. He told San Pedranos that his government would not let San Pedro down.Click here to read the rest of the article in the San Pedro Sun
