Josue Carballo Replaces Doc Mendez in Orange Walk East

Marco Tulio Mendez

Josue Carballo may not be a household name outside of Orange Walk, after all the incumbent town councilor is still considered a newcomer to national politics.  But, he was recently chosen to succeed Doctor Marco Tulio Mendez as the P.U.P. standard bearer for Orange Walk East.  While he will be facing Elodio Aragon Junior, another new politician, in the 2017 general elections, there is still a lot of ground to be covered.  In speaking with the media this morning, Carballo commented briefly on Mendez’s personal woes before speaking on his campaign efforts to retain a P.U.P. stronghold in the constituency.

“The party has taken its official stance.  We all know that everyone is innocent until proven guilty.  It is a private matter so with all respect to Doctor Mendez, to his family, we’re going to leave it to the court of law for that to be decided.  But when…”



“I am not talking about the charges themselves, I am talking about the blowback, even though he is proven innocent do you fear that persons may take it out on you?”

“Well I am my own person, my track record always shows that I’ve been working independently and working for the area, working for years and I think that’s what people are looking for.  Every time I go out I’ve continued my campaign going out and thanking the people of the East that came out for the convention.  I have personally been out there outreaching to them and our talk is centered around work, around what the East needs, around where the East is going and that’s what I hear from the people of the East as I go out.”



“How do you believe you’ll fare off against another son of the East, Elodio Aragon?”


Josue Carballo

“Well, like I said we are ready, the great People’s United Party is working hard.  We have been working in the area.  Orange Walk East is a P.U.P. constituency and it is very progressive people, forward thinking.  I think as the convention showed it was one of the biggest and we go forward like that.”
