U.D.P. endorses Boots; and P.U.P.’s Ivan Ramos wins convention

Anthony ‘Boots’ Martinez

In political news, the red and blue machines revved up over the weekend as both the U.D.P. and P.U.P. held conventions for standard bearers for the next general elections. Supporters of the ruling United Democratic Party descended upon the Cumberbatch Field in Port Loyola on Sunday evening in throngs as area representative Anthony ‘Boots’ Martinez was endorsed by constituents and party stalwarts in a third bid for political office. Martinez was the sole candidate so he received full endorsement from the gathering.

    My area representatives lives in my district, I believe that should be a requirement for all elected officials. I appreciate the fact that Boots is not afraid to show up for funerals, a rally or in the daylight but his constituents need to feel the same relative security he feels in his neighborhood.
