Belize City P.U.P.’s Manifesto to be Launched

Bernard Wagner

On Thursday, Belize City’s P.U.P. slate will gather at the Neal Pen Road basketball court to publicly launch their manifesto. But we got a bit of a preview from mayoral candidate Bernard Wagner after his nomination today. He explains that as part of a “people-centered” agenda the P.U.P. aims for financial reform in order to build more capital projects. 

 

Bernard Wagner, P.U.P. Mayoral Candidate

“Clearly, we are about the people; that’s the platform that we are running on. We continue to pivot on that platform that we are about the people; we will drive programs that put people first. Infrastructure is good, it drives the economy, it drives economic development, but we can’t forget the social fabric; we can’t forget the people. We want to begin to usher in an era of fiscal management; we can’t continue to depend on government. Government is good, the subvention is good but we have to begin to carry our own weight as a Council. That will be one of our clear goals, to begin to produce budget surpluses which we can fund capital projects.”

 

We’ll have more from the manifesto launch in Thursday’s newscast.
