Saldivar or Faber for leadership? Toledo East new comer weighs in!

Turning to the leadership fight in the U.D.P….Patrick Faber has launched his bid for leadership of the party. That convention is set for February of next year. Faber already has a number of colleagues who have openly supported him. But then there are those new comers, like Dennis Garbutt, who are not elected but who will be naming delegates to the convention. So we asked Garbutt in whose corner he is. Here’s what he had to say.


Dennis Garbutt, UDP Standard Bearer, Toledo East

“One thing I look at, we have one leader at the moment and that man’s name is the Honorable Dean Oliver Barrow and the truth of the matter is that he is the man that is leading us at the moment. So, where that chip falls eventually that is where I will be with the leadership. As it relates to who I endorse and support, I am in good communication with both gentlemen and I think the UDP has two fine leaders in both and I think whoever is elected as the leader of the UDP in 2020, I will stand with them.”


Andrea Polanco

“So both Mr Faber and Mr Saldivar have reached out to you? Have they asked for your support?”


Dennis Garbutt

Dennis Garbutt

“They have both asked for my support and I am there to support my United Democratic Party to  take us to victory.”
