(Cayo Northeast)

Sunday, June 8, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: San Ignacio/Santa Elena town Mayor John August bested a field of three today to become the new United Democratic Party (UDP) standard bearer for the Cayo Northeast division.

A constituency convention was held at the Sacred Heart College gymnasium and saw the participation of August, Eduardo Juan and Anthony McNab.

The results show that August obtained 975 votes, nearly triple what his nearest competitor got.  Eduardo Juan obtained 398 votes, while Anthony McNab received 72 votes.

A total of 1,454 ballots were cast in Sunday’s UDP convention in Cayo Northeast.  9 of the ballots were rejected.

John August will now go head to head with the People’s United Party’s Orlando Habet in the next general elections constitutionally due in 2017.

Whoever wins the seat will replace the current two-time area representative Elvin Penner who fell from grace with his own party after being caught up in a passport scandal involving South Korean national Won Hong Kim.
