Schakron and Galvez; Bro and Sis for Lake I

Martin Galvez

As we said, we caught up with businessman Martin Galvez, when he addressed an audience of party supporters at Independence Hall.  Galvez, the proprietor of Royal Wholesale, is a last-minute addition to the roster succeeding Yolanda Schakron.  At the launch of the P.U.P. City Council manifesto today, he publicly declared that he won’t be haunted by dual citizenship. Schakron pledged to the residents of the constituency that she will be supporting the efforts of her brother to deliver a victory for the P.U.P. and that now their opponents will have double trouble.

“Dean Barrow, I am not an American citizen. I have always been willing to help the less fortunate.  Anybody who knows Martin Galvez would know that.  I bring to this dynamic team sincerity, honesty and humility.  I beg of you voters of the Lake Independence Area, I beg your vote on March seventh.  One vote for Martin Galvez will mean we’ll get rid of two kings, Mark King and King Barrow.  I want you to know that one vote also will bring double the love.  That one vote will bring Martin Galvez and Yolanda Schakron.”

“Dean Barrow and the U.D.P. thought that they could keep us down and steal the seat from Lake Independence but I have a message fu dem.  Unu have two people fu deal with now.  The people ah Lake Independence are all about love and now they’re going to have double the love.  And Jules, Martin noh even have wahn green card.  I speak to the people of Lake Independence I will work hand in hand with Martin to bring [victory] and relief the suffering of the people of that area.  For too long the people of Lake-I, the last four years, the people of Lake-I are being punished.  That da weh di U.D.P. say but mek I tell unu unu have to deal with Yolanda Schakron and Martin Galvez now.  I want to tell the people that we will be out there today and everyday to campaign and we will deliver Lake I to the P.U.P.!”

Later in the newscast, we’ll have the presentation of the manifesto.

    Is martin a born Belizean or a born guat also? we need to know in advance before another boomshell disrupts this PUP and end up things upside down. it might be the case why cordel’s committee are stepping down, where’s the unity something doesn’t match but is ringing the bell.

  2. alley cat says:

    It could be that the committee did not necessarily agree with first Shackron and now her brother while passing up a loyal PUP like Carlos Diaz who delivered that area in 3 previous elections. All speculation on my end not sure…

    They are just waisting their time. The people from Lake I know already who they are dealing with.For you and your sister and everyone else is:Mr.Dean Barrow.any one that has a little education knows that.Teach the people to have respect no mater what side of the party you are.

    Actually, Alley Cat, the commitee of Lake I would have refuse to support Diaz even quicker. If you do not know Cordel won Diaz commitee members who were poor and suffering under him. It was Cordel who help these people and made their live much better. Who fight for them to get a shelter and job.
