Will the mayor Darrell Bradley be on the City Council ballot?

Darrell Bradley

For months now, the political future of Darrell Bradley has been up in the air, and he’s certainly done nothing to change that. Tonight, there is every indication that Bradley has decided to seek another term as Mayor. But that’s still unconfirmed at this point. We do know that Prime Minister Dean Barrow met with Bradley on Wednesday at his Coney Drive office. Bradley says they talked streets, but we’re pretty sure his political future was on the agenda. We were unable to reach the Mayor today, but we did reach Dion Leslie, who has offered himself as a mayoral candidate. Leslie confirmed that the conversation with Bradley has started, but the discussion is ongoing. Also confirmed was that Leslie has every intention of stepping aside if Bradley decides to run. He says that was always the agreement between the Mayor and himself.  Of course, there’s a time factor, since Leslie certainly doesn’t want to spend money setting up his campaign if he will eventually step down. We’re told a decision will be made by next week. On April twenty-fifth, P.M. Barrow told the media that as far as he is concerned, Bradley’s ship has sailed. Looks to us like it turned around and is sailing right back into port.

    Well, as much as he had hinted and indicated that he wanted to run against Santi, a thought which was shot down by his own party, he was given an option by them to go to Freetown to run against Francis. Apparently, he has drawn the ire of King Tut Dean lately. You might as well try to get back to North Front Street “Little Darryl.” (See Rickey Smiley show). However, I have this gut feeling that the people of Belize might have a little surprise for you and yours. Hope you and the newly crowned PLAYBOY DAD get your hustle on from that contract you’re planning to terminate before the dorey turnover.

    They say if you win the City or Belize district, you win the general elections. There is also a correlation between City council elections and general election in the Belize city. Like last general elections, The UDP were winning the city council elections and from that you can know the UDP will win Belize City for general elections.
    The UDP needs Darrell Bradley to stay as mayor, He can win the next municipal elections which will help UDP win Belize City for General Elections in 2017. If Darrell is gone, PUP may win Belize City for municipals.
