P.U.P.’s Allan Pollard Wants Queen Square

Allan Pollard

Belize City Councilor Allan Pollard wants to be the area representative for Queen Square, a traditional U.D.P. stronghold and the constituency of Prime Minister Dean Barrow since 1984.  Barrow is retiring and is not seek re-election and it is known that his ground commander and sister, Denise “Sister B” Barrow will succeed him as the U.D.P.’s standard bearer for that division. It is a hard road to climb for twenty-five-year-old Pollard, who is a newcomer in the political arena. Some say he is fighting an uphill battle, but Pollard believes he’ll make it to the top.

“It is definitely one of those constituencies people that have doubts about and they feel that’s a U.D.P. stronghold. They are not wrong but some things must come to an end. Dynasties must come to an end. We have seen that in history, countless time. And I believe that now is the time for that change and I believe that I am the person to bring that change in that area.”

“You are young, not only in age but in politics.”

 

Allan Pollard

“That is true. That would be a fact, by age and by occupation. I am twenty-five indeed, but I don’t believe that age is a hindrance and I don’t believe that age is a disadvantage.”

 

Hipolito Novelo

“Lack of experience might be though.”

 

Allan Pollard

“Well, lack of experience yes but that is of course you don’t have good advisors. I have ultimate confidence n the people around me and ultimate in the People’s United Party.”

 

Hipolito Novelo

“What if the criticism would be that the P.U.P. just needed someone to go there in the lion’s den and you were lucky or unfortunate to be that one?”

 

Allan Pollard 

“Well that will be a fair criticism. That would be fair but I could tell you based on m commitment to that area that I am not going anywhere to go take up any place. I am not any bench player or bench warmer for anybody.”
