With the counting of the ballots now over and Mayor Earl Trapp Junior having won another landslide victory, the future of the Twin Towns of San Ignacio and Santa Elena continues to be placed on a forward course. As the Chairman of the United Democratic Party Alberto August has observed, “Your UDP Mayoral Candidate was elected with 2,102 votes.”

Coming from humble beginnings, Mayor Earl Trapp did not win those votes by pure charisma alone.  He is a hard worker and is frequently seen getting his hands dirty as major works are undertaken around the sprawling twin towns.

Mayor Trapp is now seeking a sixth term, having served as councilor for four terms. In March of next year, Mayor Trapp will also be seeking a second term as the Mayor of the Twin Towns of San Ignacio and Santa Elena.

We recently sat with Mayor Earl Trapp to gather his thoughts on the future of a bustling municipality. He sounded confident about the future of a rapidly growing town, which has now become a major tourist center in the Country.

“I can tell you in two to three years time under my leadership and the support from my Council we will have this municipality to city level or city standard, definitely I would continue to push arduously, I have been working hard, I am a man that works seven days a week, because I believe that we were elected to serve and the time is so short- three years is very minimal to get a lot of work done, but the proof is there.”
