The United Democratic Party’s Orange Walk Central committee proved without a shadow of a doubt that the constituency is ready and geared up for the General Elections. Prime Minister Dean Barrow concluded his fourth visit of his national tour on Sunday, February 5th when he visited Orange Walk Central. This most recent one again proves that everywhere the PM goes the UDP is ready, but more than ready, the UDP is stronger than ever and able to deliver a victory.
The People’s Stadium was overflowing with constituents from Orange Walk Central; the energy that the election season has brought was palpable in the air as thousands of party faithful gathered to hear the addresses. Town Council Candidate Francine Burns gave a rousing address promising to deliver Orange Walk town once again to the UDP she also endorsed Denny Grijalva for his work ethic having already delivered so much for the division. She was followed by Mayoral Candidate Ivan Leiva, who echoed that sentiment, explaining that because of Grijalva’s strong presence in the constituency it has roused Johnny Briceno from his slumber forcing him to start to walk in the division. He added that it is too late however, as the abandonment, which the division has experienced, is not something that will be easily forgotten. He emphasized the fact that the UDP will never abandon Orange Walk Central and applauded the current UDP Town Council and mayor Phillip de la Fuente for his work over the past 3 years.
For his part, Grijalva explained that what Orange Walk Central needs is good leadership. He noted that already there is much that is being done for the division with streets being paved and upgraded and empty lots being cleaned and drains being upgraded. All this is done, he said, because of the assistance which the Town Council and the Central Government has given to the division. This will continue he added, when the UDP is voted into office come March 7th.
Hon. Dean Barrow also took to the podium, in his address he reiterated the warmth of the people in the north and emphasized that the reception by those gathered to greet him on his way to the stadium was enthusiastic. He explained that those on the street side cheered for the UDP, giving him that much more confidence that the party will secure victory on March 7th. PM Barrow then went on to congratulate Denny Grijalva for his accomplishments in such a short period of time since being endorsed as the Standard Bearer for the UDP. The PM told the gathering that not only is Denny a worker, but he has a personality filled with charisma and warmth and he genuinely has a feeling for the people. “Denny da fi real!”, he pronounced. He concluded by telling the gathering that the UDP will win with an ever greater majority in 2012 and that victory will establish that the UDP is the best government that this country has ever seen.
