John Saldivar Endorses Clear the Land in Rural North

John Saldivar

In more political news…Belize Rural North Area Representative Edmond Castro will face a challenge from Dwight Tillett at a U.D.P. convention scheduled for May thirty-first. Tillett has previously acted as Castro’s campaign manager and also as his C.E.O., but that isn’t fazing the very confident incumbent. One of the reasons for his confidence, in his own words, is because he has the support of the entire Cabinet. One senior member of the Cabinet was with Castro at an event in Crooked Tree and gave his personal endorsement.

 

John Saldivar, Minister of National Security

“It comes at a time when the person responsible for lobbying for this Police Station, Hon. Clear the Land Castro, is facing a challenge to his seat from within his Party, and it serves to highlight the hard work that he has put in for the people of Belize Rural North that he deserves to remain your Area Representative.”

Edmond Castro, Area Rep., Belize Rural North

“The Prime Minister is supporting me. The entire Cabinet is supporting me. This is not like I remember in the past two conventions where the Cabinet was split and some of my colleagues were going up against me. The Prime Minister assures me that he is with me. He and the entire Cabinet deh with me! If you notice my Cabinet colleague the Hon. John Saldivar is here and I think last week or two Minister Faber was at a function I had. In the past Minister Faber and I used to find ourselves on different sides on the fight in conventions but Minister Faber is no longer against me. None of my colleagues are against me in this fight. So I think whoever wants to fool themselves and throw their hat in the race…I think it would have been a wonderful thing for us to have our general election on the thirty-first of May…throw in the next…major disaster can come and we will beat all two of them.”
