Mayor Danny Guerrero is following his father’s footsteps as his dad, Mr. Efrain Guerrero Sr. was once the alcalde or village council chairman for this village. Here is Chairman Efrain Guerrero as he went to the main pier to welcome and do some business for San Pedro with two government ministers. Pictured along with the chairman was Sandy Hunter, Minister of Public Service. Mr. Octavio Alamilla was also present as the treasurer of the village council. Also featured is Mr. Priciliano Gomez, who was probably a member of the village council. And the long standing Area Representative for Belize Rural South was Honorable Louis ‘Cuz’ Sylvestre (pronounced Sylvester) to whom can be attributed many great accomplishments for San Pedro village and town.

Second photo: Efrain Guerrero Sr., with Mr. Dimas Guerrero Sr. and Mr. James Blake, about 1963

We go all the way back to 1963 when the fishing co-operative was founded in San Pedro. And listen to the conversation of the three gentlemen in the photo. (James Howel Blakc, Dimas Guerrero and Efrain Guerrero)

“So what do you think of our fishing cooperative?” asked Chairman Efrain Guerrero enthusiastically.

“Well, this is the best thing that has ever happened to San Pedro,” exclaimed Mr. Dimas

Guerrero who was a fisherman since 1950. “Don’t you think so Papa Blake? Even though you do not need to work, don’t you think this is good for San Pedro?”

“Well, yes it is very good for everyone,” commented Papa Blake. “Now that the coconut industry is dying, at least every Sanpedrano will be able to make a decent living by fishing? Are you going to dive, Dimas?”

“No man, you are joking. Diving is for the young men like my son Ovidio and Orlando. I will set up my fish trap and I can live that much better than the wages I earned collecting coconuts in your cocal.”

And Chairman Efrain Guerrero added, “San Pedro is now exporting lobsters, fish fillet, conch and whole fish. This is the best industry San Pedro has ever had because we all are the owners of our business.”
