Teacher Wally Gracious in Defeat

Walter Garbutt

Indeed, jumping the gun to declare victory prior to an official confirmation has proven quite embarrassing for the political greenhorn.  But Garbutt maintains full composure, posting on his Facebook page earlier today that he will remain forever grateful and committed to the people of the constituency.  It’s a bitter pill for anyone to swallow. The U.D.P. now holds only one seat in the two southern divisions. Here’s Garbutt’s initial reaction to having believed that the spoils in Stann Creek West were actually his.


Walter Garbutt, U.D.P. Candidate, Stann Creek West

“I feel great, thanks to the lord and thanks to the many people in Stann Creek West that have voted for me, that have demonstrated a confidence in me and the many people that are around me right here. Thank you Stann Creek West! I can’t wait to begin, there is so much to do in Stann Creek West, I am excited and I am anxious and I believe that I am adequately prepared to serve this great district that have been so good to me.”


Garbutt punctuates his Facebook post by saying “failure is not in falling but falling and staying there.  Our government remains U.D.P. so the best is still yet to come.”

    Another good speech after a loss. A good and intelligent person!

    We need more of these type of people to run the country.
