Letter to the Editor: PUP Belize Rural South Executive Committee


Dear Editor:
The PUP Belize Rural South Executive Committee has commenced a series of informative newspaper articles with the intention of keeping everyone properly informed.
In the area of sports we all know that the present San Pedro Town Council has done absolutely nothing for the past UDP administrations. The present Town Council continues the trend of doing nothing and every time interested parties ask for help, their usual excuse is that there is no money. But how come they can find money at Christmas time to give away a few hams to a very limited few of their friends and cronies?
PUP New Executive-1Does the UDP and Manuel Heredia really believe that by bribing people with hams they are improving the standard of living of our people? Don’t they realize that the more you spoon feed people, the more you keep them in poverty? The people are not asking for hams. The people of San Pedro need opportunities that will help them provide food for their tables.
Now we hear the Mayor of San Pedro Town advertising that they will spend five millions on sports in San Pedro. So what? Now Central Government will borrow money to patch work in San Pedro in an attempt to look good before Town Council election in 2015? What about the new school that has been promised every election for the past three or four elections? What about the new hospital they have been promising since 1997? Mayor Danny said before elections that as he was speaking, a dialysis machine was on its way to San Pedro Poly clinic. Well that shipment must have been from Mars, Jupiter or Pluto which has been struck just like the dialysis machine.
Be aware of empty promises San Pedro.
The PUP Belize Rural South Executive Committee
