Jackie for Mayor in Belmopan

Jacklyn Burns

In the Capital, sitting deputy mayor Jacklyn Burns is now leading the U.D.P. slate into the municipal elections. Mayor Khalid Belisle announced earlier on that he was not re-contesting his seat and Burns took up the challenge. Going head-to-head against a friend and fellow educator, Burns was asked about her confidence going into the elections.

“We are pretty optimistic; we’ve been putting in the work, we’ve been house-to-house on the campaign trail. We’ve covered just about almost all of central Belmopan and we have some areas in the periphery that we still have to walk, but we are jamming every day and we go up to curfew time in some instances.”



“The U.D.P. has been the presiding power over Belmopan since 2006, which is fifteen years. Do you guys think that the Belmopan residents have seen your track work, want you back in office or do you think its maybe time that they have a change?”

“We are, like I said, very optimistic. We feel that our track record has spoke for itself and there is a reason why five terms the U.D.P. has been elected in Belmopan. We want to continue the good work; we want to build on the good work that has been laid by past mayors under the U.D.P. umbrella. And we are certainly going to put our best efforts towards winning that.”
