It was a festive atmosphere at a packed Ecumenical College multipurpose complex on Sunday, August 24 with prizes, music and speeches as the people of Dangriga officially endorsed the Mayoral and 6 councilor candidates who will represent the United Democratic Party in the upcoming Municipal Elections slated for March 4, 2015.

The activities started at 3 in the afternoon with the swearing in of the candidates by UDP Party Chairman, Alberto August. Then it was on to the candidates who all pledged to work hard to return the municipality of Dangriga back to its former glory. Under the PUP, the town has been steadily sinking into hopelessness with streets being broken up and garbage not being collected. Simply put there is no vision for the town at this point in time. That however is soon coming to an end as each of the young dynamic candidates gave their vision of how improvement will come to Dangriga in all areas. Those presentations were capped off by Francis Humphreys who boldly stated that Dangriga will soon once again be the Culture Capital of Belize. He expressed confidence in his young team members whom he says he is the oldest among but whom he added have great experience to lead the town.

Also presenting to the gathering was UDP Standard Bearer, Frank ‘Papa’ Mena who also expressed confidence in the team. He said that under Humphrey’s leadership Dangriga will once again shine as he has been tested and proven based on his personal achievements as well as the achievements Dangriga had while Humphreys was mayor.

The guest speaker for the afternoon was Minister of Education, Hon. Patrick Faber. After congratulating the Dangriga team, he went on to explain to those in attendance that it is only under the United Democratic Party that progress will once again return to Dangriga. He highlighted the various projects already being undertaken by Central Government in the town, not least among them the support given in education. He added that when the UDP is elected to the municipality, there will be even greater benefits to the town.
