Marlon Skeen, Independent Candidate

Marlon Skeen

Municipal elections are only two months away, but there’s a major change in the Belmopan slate of the Vision Inspired by the People. VIP announced today that its mayoral candidate, Marlon Skeen, is stepping down. It means that VIP is now in a rush to find a new mayoral candidate by the time it launches its slate on January eleventh.  VIP recently announced it was joining forces with the People’s National Party, based in the south to bolster any chances of securing a seat. The VIP in the last elections fared off better than the outgoing People’s United Party. A joint release from Skeen and VIP says that following consultations with the party’s executive it has been agreed that Skeen will now be running as an independent mayoral candidate.  Skeen resigned in 2008 as the Chief Executive Officer at the Kolbe Foundation and more recently has been involved in private enterprises.
