Anthony’s boots were made for walking with Carlos Perdomo
The two politicians have been going toe to toe and they have also looked for support from heavyweights within the party. News Five caught up with Minister of Works, Anthony “Boots” Martinez who says he is publicly supporting Perdomo, who has worked with him since their election in 2008.

“To me it’s looking positive for Mr. Perdomo who is the incumbent. I think he has the edge based on incumbency. He is representative, he is the duly elected area representative and the incumbency brings its own weight. In other words, I as a seasoned politician knows that incumbency should bring at least three hundred people exactly with you. I don’t care how unpopular you are in a constituency, three hundred people out of four thousand and add people; you must have three hundred people supporting you: people you have done things for, people you have reached out for, people you have visited. So I believe that he has the edge being the incumbent and also with the time frame of the Convention in terms of not a long time.”
As we said, the voters will decide on Sunday.
