Friday, April 4, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: Belize City Mayor Darrell Bradley has admitted he missed the Monday, March 31 deadline to file papers declaring his intent to run for a second term under the United Democratic Party (UDP).

While he has earned rave reviews for his work thus far, his chances of continuing past next March depended on making that deadline.

But it does not seem to bother the Mayor, who says he is more worried about keeping up his current performance and being able to report continued success to the people of Belize City. So that is that. Or is it?

The Mayor says he does wish he could run again, but he was honest enough to say that before he considers a second term, he wants to fulfill the promises he made in his first.

Nevertheless, he admits it is now out of his hands.

There are two declared candidates, former deputy mayors Dion Leslie and Bernard Q. Pitts Jr., as former councilor Leila Peyrefitte is reported to have withdrawn.
