I’m not sure that with the sluggish Belizean and global economies as well as world wide complaining about incumbent governments, “Stay with” us is the most exciting pitch. But what do I know?
Here is something with a bit more pizazz. Independent Mayoral (purple) candidate Mel Paz.
We have a relatively new candidate for Area Rep, Bobby Lopez. He is running under the VIP party (“Vision Inspired by the People”). Mr. Lopez is the owner and founder of Hummingbird Furnishings. A huge rattan and wicker furniture company with showrooms in San Pedro and Belmopan. He’s also a frequent guest on San Pedro’s 7am morning show. He’s a very enthusiastic and well spoken guy.
Most telephone poles have a little bit of each party. (Well…the biggest signs from the incumbent red party and then the others.)
So if you are a visitor arriving in the next few weeks, get ready for it! And if you are a citizen, I hope you are voting.
Remember, that on election day itself, alcohol is legally unavailable at stores and bars. The election is and should be very serious business.
