By BBN Staff: Mayor of San Pedro Town, Daniel Guerrero issued a statement today bidding farewell and thanking the people of the town for putting their trust in him.

“I wish to also place on record, a big thank you to the United Democratic Party under the leadership of the former Party Leader and Prime Minister, the Right Honourable Dean Oliver Barrow, for allowing me to successfully serve under a UDP ticket. Equally, I wish to thank the former Area Representative, Hon. Manuel Heredia Jr. and the former Belize Rural South UDP executive, for believing in my abilities to lead. But most importantly, a big thank you to all those who lent support for my elections – all three consecutive terms,” Guerrero said.

Guerrero also expressed his gratitude to the staff of the San Pedro Town Council.

He also offered an advice to the new Mayor that will be elected on March 3.

“Put the interest of your resident first – Always! And that is what I did over the past 9 years – I always placed the interest of our island and residents first,” he said.

Guerrero went on to share some of the challenges he faced as Mayor and his accomplishments including that the council managed to repay over $1.5 million in outstanding inherited loans.

“ We restructured our debt, and in 3 years were financially stable. Furthermore, in my first and second terms, we invested over $3.5 million in road works alone. So much so that with the support of US University students and the business sector, we raised enough funds to replace London Bridges over swamps, into the road,” Guerrero said.

Guerrero says that under his administration several streets were paved.

“Looking at Culture, Leisure and Public Events, our town has made significant improvements and built on past efforts. We realized that San Pedro Town has so much potential in this area, given our geography, our charm, multi-cultural background, and rich history,” he added.

Guerrero called on the new council to build on his success and re-invent the wheels to chart the way forward.

“May God continue to bless our residents and the people of San Pedro Town. May God bless Belize and may God bless you,” Guerrero ended.
