On Sunday the United Democratic Party will officially endorse the mayoral and six councilor candidates that will be contesting the municipal elections on March 4, 2015. The event will take place at the Ecumenical Auditorium starting at 2 p.m.

Taking up the position for mayor will be long time Educator Francis Humphreys, he will be joined by teachers Earth Lopez and Cheryl Molina along with businesspersons Yadira Diego and Alexander Joseph. Also on the slate are former cooperative officer Herbert Nicasio and youth activist Gary Francisco.

Organizers of the event say the endorsement will also serve as a time for Dangriga to say thank you to the Prime Minister, Hon. Dean Barrow for efforts being made by central government to improve the quality of life of residents in that municipality. Like is being done countrywide, significant investments are being made by the government in infrastructure as well as social assistance programs in that municipality.

Through the infrastructure program labor intensive methods are being used to pave a number of streets in that municipality creating hundreds of jobs. Running in tandem with the increase of work opportunities, the government ensures that every single student who graduates from primary school gets a $300 dollar subsidy for them to continue their education.
