Is San Pedro Town Mayor Gunning for Belize Rural South Seat?

Gualberto “Wally” Nunez

The embattled Area Representative for Belize Rural South, Andre Perez, is the talk of the town in San Pedro. And, one accusation being tossed around is that Gualberto “Wally” Nunez, the Mayor of San Pedro Town was the orchestrator behind the text message and picture leaks. The assertion is that Mayor Nunez has his eyes set on Perez’s seat. Well we spoke with Mayor Nunez today in his office at the Town Hall. He says the United Democratic Party has been working overtime to divide P.U.P. supporters on the island. Nunez says he has no interest in the Belize Rural South seat at this time and that his focus is on his leadership role at the town council.


Gualberto “Wally” Nunez, Mayor, San Pedro Town

“Actually I have been meeting with him constantly and we have been talking about it, because there has been a lot of things being posted and shared and they are trying to have us divided in San Pedro, the PUP and quite honestly that is more of a personal situation that happened there that I really wouldn’t want to comment on until the investigation is completed. I talked to him already and I told him it is your personal life and I wouldn’t want to get involved in that mix nuh. I know the UDP is using it to try to divide us trying to say that one of us here and there staged it but I had nothing to do with it. I have always wanted to run for mayor and I believe that we have worked very hard to get in the position of mayor and our council. It took us a while to come to this point where we are at and we are seeking reelection for mayoral. I am not thinking in any other capacity at the moment. We are looking forward to winning our town council elections and be reelected as mayor because there is a lot more work done. I wouldn’t want to talk about that because I am not interested in any other position at the moment. I know that is a UDP tactic.”
