Corozal’s Marin Backs Richard Quan to Replace Hilberto Campos

Pablo Marin

Last week we told you that Mayor Hilberto Campos of Corozal Town will not be seeking reelection in the upcoming Municipal Elections 2018 and already two U.D.P. hopefuls have put in their bid to replace Campos.  Richard Quan and Rafael Castillo are going head to head at the convention scheduled for this Saturday in Corozal. So who is Corozal Bay area rep. Pablo Marin throwing his support behind?

“I have always worked along with Richard Quan, he has been in the party from so long; just like Rafael Castillo. But before this came out, Richard Quan asked me to support him and I did say yes. Nobody was putting their names so when Rafael came I said sorry; I already gave my word to Richard Quan so that is why I am supporting Richard Quan.”

“So you feel that the process has been a little unfair to your candidate being that he was in the lead for some time? As you rightly mentioned, he was the only one that put his name in for some time, but now he sees himself running into a convention that can go anyway.”

 

Pablo Marin

“That is true and that’s why we are democratic so if anybody puts in their name at the right time then that person has the right to contest and we don’t have anything against that. The only thing that we ask is when this finishes, whoever wins has to come to us and work along.”
