Tracey Panton Says She Will Win in Albert

The P.U.P. convention for the Albert Division is heating up, but the U.D.P. Area Rep Tracy Panton says she is not fazed and will deliver the Albert for the U.D.P. in the next general elections no matter what.  Senators Valerie Woods and Paul Thompson are the two contenders for the P.U.P.  In an interview today, Panton was asked about the jostling in the P.U.P. by the two candidates she knows well.

“It is really not a matter for me. As I have said, previously, it is a matter for the People’s United Party. They have the right to put candidates against each other to become the caretaker of this division for them and that is what they are doing. It is a matter of their business. I can tell you that the Albert Committee and I continue to do what we have done since I was elected and that is to continue to serve the people and to ensure that the people who elected us get the services that they require from the Government of Belize. I have said this before, if you pay attention to your constituency, you have less time to pay attention to opponents.”

“You would stand to benefit if a weaker candidate emerge, wouldn’t you?”

“I have made a decision from the onset. I know both senators; they are my colleagues in parliament and so I have no interest in getting involved in the convention. I have asked no one to get involved in the convention. Whoever emerges is the opponent that we will face in the next general election.”

“Which [candidate] would you prefer to face at the polls?”

“It really is not a matter for me. I have won two elections in terms of delivering the seat for the United Democratic Party here in the Albert. And I will deliver this seat again.”

    A woman of confidence, but rightly said. If you take care of your constituents, they will take care of you.
