|Mr. Sosa is the new Ambergris Caye Traffic Control Committee Chairman. |
On Tuesday, January 23rd, 2007, The San Pedro Sun received confirmation that Pablo Sosa had been appointed and he had accepted the post as the new Ambergris Caye Traffic Control Committee Chairman. In an interview with this reporter, he stated that yes he had accepted the position. Sosa replace Milo Paz Jr.
Pablo Sosa was born and raised in “Sugar City,” Orange Walk on December 29th, 1974 to Teodora Garcia and Jesus Sosa. Growing up, Pablo was enrolled at La Immaculada Elementary School and then completed one year at Technical High School. Unfortunately, a lack of financial resources forced Pablo to drop out of secondary school and go in search of a job. For two and a half years he was employed at a bakery in Orange Walk before moving to Belize City where he worked as a conductor for Batty Brothers Bus Services for two years.
While residing in Belize City, Pablo and a friend decided to move to San Pedro to try their luck. What was supposed to be a trip of only a few days turned out to be a permanent stay for Pablo. “I was immediately impressed by the beauty of the island, the friendliness of the people and the lifestyle here, so I decided to stay for good,” said Pablo. In San Pedro, Pablo went to work for the SunBreeze Hotel as part of their maintenance team. After two years, he decided to move on and tried his skills at construction. Pablo says this is where he developed an interest in the proper planning of buildings. In 1999, when he was offered a job at the Ambergris Caye Planning Office, he accepted with much enthusiasm. As time went by and this department became more organized, Mr. Sosa was promoted to building inspector. Apart from the day-to-day tasks required by this department, Pablo Sosa was also responsible for performing site inspections before and during the construction of buildings in San Pedro.
Pablo remained at the Ambergris Caye Planning and Housing Committee until his recent appointment to Chairman.
The San Pedro Sun congratulates Sosa on his recent appointment.
