UDP’S John Saldivar Takes Over The Civic With Huge Turnout

Sunday, November 3rd. 2019 –

By the media’s unofficial count, close to 3,500 persons from across the country showed up the Belize Civic Center on Sunday, November 3rd as Belmopan Area Representative John Saldivar officially launched his campaign to be elected leader of the UDP, when that Party’s national convention is held in February 2020.

Saldivar will be contesting the post against Deputy Party Leader Patrick Faber, who recently held his own official launch. At today’s event, Saldivar introduced his slate, consisting of Hugo Patt for First Deputy Party Leader and Beverly Williams for Second Deputy Party Leader.

In his address, Saldivar spoke of his plans to continue infrastructure development across the country, as well as to provide access to education, health, job opportunities, social and housing assistance and an overall upgrade of citizen security.

According to Saldivar, ”we will be working specifically along with the Football Federation of Belize to design a national strategy and countrywide program for the development of football that will see Belize in the World Cup by 2030. We must implement a new housing agenda that will include housing and shelter solutions for all, from the construction of a shelter for the homeless to rental subsidies for the working poor, to mortgage financing for the working class.”

Saldivar’s showing today will be sure to send a message to his opponent, as he had the participation of notable Cabinet members, area representatives and standard bearers including Erwin Contreras, Pablo Marin, Michael Finnigan, Edmond Castro, Angel Campos, Tracy Taegar-Panton, Frank ‘Papa’ Mena, Gaspar Vega, Phillip Willoughby, Denny Grijalva, Shyne Barrow, and John August.
