Mayor Bradley Says No Indication from Willoughby As Yet

Darrell Bradley

Mayor Darrell Bradley was also asked about the reported posting of Councillor Willoughby to the Windy City. The mayor says that while that is yet to be confirmed, if and when he will be taking up that position, things at City Hall remain the same.  Willoughby continues to play a crucial role in the City Emergency Management Organization, CEMO, and is spearheading the public awareness campaign on Zika in Belize City. 


Darrell Bradley, Belize City Mayor

“We don’t have any position in relation to that yet because I have not been notified by the councilor nor by any other entity in relation to his departure.  Phillip Willoughby is an integral part of the council, I have had the great pleasure of working with him over the past three and a half going now to four years since I have been mayor.  I think that CEMO has been one of the most effective departments of the city council.  We have seen expansion there to now where we are dealing with more coordination with flood mitigation efforts, climate resilient efforts and so it’s broad-based.  You’re dealing now with leading the city’s ZIKA response.  I think he’s an effective councilor.  I would be sad to see him depart if he chooses or goes anywhere but we would make those determinations at that appropriate time.  At the current time I don’t know that he is leaving at any specific date in the future and when that date comes then we’re going to deal with it.”


Councilor Willoughby, we understand, will be assigned to Chicago while Longsworth is off to New York City to take up a similar consular position.
