Embattled Gapi Vega speaks, basks in supporters’ love

As we’ve mentioned, beleaguered Orange Walk North Area Representative Gaspar Vega was met by a group of supporters outside of his residence this morning.  While those numbers paled in comparison to what his political opponent was able to draw, Vega says he’s satisfied with the show of support.

“It’s very emotional to see the love and the sincerity of the people of Orange Walk North.  As you can see, the vast majority of these people are people that came on their own and the calls that I had gotten yesterday was because I think there was a rumor that the demonstration was going to pass right where we‘re standing right now.  That‘s what I think motivated the people to decide to come out, to come by my house and I figure they thought, maybe for security purpose.”

“We see these amount of people out here, do you recognize what division all these people are from?”

“I would say that at least seventy-five to eighty percent is from Orange Walk North. When I first got into politics it was a brand new business for me. A brand new profession, a brand new whatever you want to call it. I wasn’t prepared for it to be sincere, I don’t come forma political family, politics has not been something that has reigned in my family. We have been supporters but never the people in the front line. So I wasn’t prepared; of course I am going to tell you that its not fair because that is not what I expected.”
