Who will replace Santi at B.T.B.?

Since the firing of Santino Castillo Junior from his position as deputy chairman of the Belize Tourism Board on February ninth, several professionals within the tourism industry have been sought to fill the vacancy. At least one has turned down the offer and we are reliably informed that an executive member of the Belize Tourism Industry Association has been approached and is considering the appointment.  With things topsy-turvy in the industry, insiders say that the BTIA is seeking an audience with the prime minister to, among other things, suggest dramatic changes at the top of the Ministry of Tourism. Castillo along with Stanley Longsworth Junior, are both stalwarts of the United Democratic Party and are well known in the industry.  Following the announcement, the BTB said that it would have named their replacements within two-days of the termination, but that hasn’t taken place. As for Castillo, well one report suggests that he has been offered an appointment to another board, but he is yet to accept.
