Over the past two years the Melanie has been responsible for the presidency of the very prestigious San Pedro Lions Club. Under her presidency the Club improved by leaps and bounds in many aspects; being actively involved in many humanitarian events, community activities and projects. It is with this Community Based mentality that Melanie Paz has made this decision to represent the island and people that she loves so much in the upcoming municipal elections.

With the slogan “No Politics, Just Business for a Better San Pedro” Melanie hopes to start making one on one visits with residents of San Pedro, not to make promises but to listen to the needs and suggestions of the people she hopes to represent. In her release she stated, “I have never had any political aspirations, and have surprised even myself that I am embarking in this challenge. My campaign will not be about promises. As the old adage goes, promises were made to be broken. I can, with all conviction, say it will be about commitment and I believe that my track record proves that is what I am about.”

We (the community) could use someone like her for sure. She is well educated and experienced.
What party affiliation?? Odd they don't mention that in the article. Isn't it necessary?
