Letter to the Editor: Gualberto “Wally” Nunez
Sunday, March 1st, 2015
Dear Mayor Guerrero,
As a duly elected councillor of the San Pedro Town Council for period 2012-2015, I have requested at numerous Council meetings, a copy of audited finances as referenced by Part VII, section 23 (5) of the town council, Chapter 87 of the laws of Belize.
I write to inform you that my numerous requests seemed to have fallen on deaf ears as I have not received a reply much less the financial report. As we near the close of our 3 year term of office, we are obliged to give a report of the council’s finances to the voters who elected us. You promised to be transparent and accountable for the taxes collected and as such must deliver on this commitment.
This is my final appeal to you before seeking the intervention of the Minister of Local Government whose responsibility it is to ensure that town councils are complying with their legal obligations.
In anticipation of your prompt and favourable response, I remain.
/S/ Gualberto “Wally” Nunez Jr.
San Pedro Town Councillor
