By BBN Staff: As Belize prepares for Village Council elections, a team of Villagers from Independence has stepped forward to represent their community without the banner of any of the two major political third parties.
Lead by Akeem Wiliams, the “Real Deal” team consisting of Mireya Majano, Myrdibeth Cabral, Denisha Burgess, Jarvis young, Darryl
Lozano, and Lloyd Coe, say they are ready to change the culture where progress comes at the whim of a political party.
Williams spoke with Breaking Belize News (BBN) today, explaining that the vision began two years ago when he and some other villagers were speaking and realized that despite the immense potential for wealth
generation in Independence, the common man was not seeing the benefits.

He stressed that his team has a plan, and with the support of the people and the business community, they will bring about changes in
Independence that will be lead by the people.
The elections are set for June 30.
