By Aaron Humes: Newly-minted Senator Antonio Herrera pointed out that the increase in bus fares and gas prices has limited opportunities in rural communities.

Fishermen are making fewer trips to the sea and the limit on the size of conch and lobster has risen, reducing profits and making it difficult to maintain expenses, he revealed.

And in tourism, the rebound hasn’t reached Sarteneja where there are up to 70 tour guides still unemployed.

Even in the basic issue of water provision, Sarteneja residents have abandoned the water system in droves due to high salt content and Caledonia residents are paying their water bills from home rather than the office left for the purpose.

And the fuel subsidy continues to pain cane farmers, especially in Corozal.

About the only good thing happening in the area is the Sarteneja Road – a UDP initiative that is now being fulfilled.

This Village Council Election round is a message of protest, he concluded.
