Francis Fonseca Posts about U.D.P. Convention in Freetown

Since 2003, Francis Fonseca has been the undefeated area representative for Freetown Division, winning that division even at a time when the People’s United Party was unpopular. Fonseca posted a message on his Facebook congratulating Elrington on his win. He also thanked Doctor Carla Barnett for being a worthy, gracious and tough opponent and for her contributions to the Freetown community as U.D.P. standard bearer.  Fonseca says that “Politics is about building relationships with the people you serve and working to advance policies and programs which can improve the lives of the residents of Freetown and indeed the wider Belizean public.”  But he took jabs saying that it has been very disappointing and disheartening to see the government, for the past ten years, completely disrespect and disregard the will of the people by channelling all resources and services for the development of Freetown through unelected U.D.P. standard bearers.  He adds that he did not expect this to change and that as election approaches, he expects it to worsen.
