Ramon “Monchi” Cervantes, Orange Walk North
As we may know by now, COVID-19 cases in the Orange Walk District have been increasing. We want to take the time out to thank all our frontline workers who risk their lives for others! We urge that you protect yourself and loved ones by:
- Washing your hands
- Practicing social distancing
- Wearing a mask
- Seeking medical advice at 0-800-MOH-CARE (0-800-664-2273) hotline.
Together we are strong! Together we fight! Together we can beat it!
Jorge ‘Milin’ Espat, Cayo West
¡TU VOTO TIENE PODER!
We will WIN! We will SERVE! #2020AÑODELCAMBIO
Our ground work in Cayo West has continued since the convention day last year. We have been working very hard to secure victory.
As your candidate I want to assure you something: You are no longer without a leader! We are here to uplift Cayo West again! I am not like the current Cayo West area representative who lied and abandoned you. We will work tirelessly to ensure that everyone is included in our plan to transform this country back into a productive nation.
I want to thank you all for welcoming us into your homes. The reception has been very good and we have heard the loud cry for change.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we have had to adapt new measures to keep you and your family safe as we visit you. So far we have been able to visit Arenal, Calla Creek, Corozalito and Succotz Villages. We have also put tireless efforts into Benque. There is a lot of work ahead amidst the pandemic which has instilled much uncertainty but we will do our every possible effort to reach every single person in Cayo West and ensure a victory on Election Day.
We want you to know that WE HAVE LISTENED and we will Deliver! The sentiment in every household as we do the house to house campaign in Cayo West is the same: We need a change. The people are fed up with the false promises and abandonment. The neglect is evident! Election after election, the same story! Our country is headed in the wrong direction, and only we the people can change that!
Get registered to vote. YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE! DO NOT BE AFRAID!
#RISE #VOTE #WINSe aproximan las elecciones generales, un momento decisivo y crítico para Belize. Cayo Oeste, una de las áreas más abandonadas aun así teniendo un Ministro con el ministerio más fuerte en economía. Pero sí, Cayo Oeste tiene mucho potencial, solo falta tener un buen representante que nos brinde la representación necesaria para abogar por un mejoramiento.
MILIN is committed to making it possible. He is a man of integrity and serious in making things happen. ✅We will WIN❗ ✅ We will SERVE❗
Please remain safe. Follow the recommendations given by health authorities and protect your family and Community. We are optimistic about a brighter day for Belize. God bless you all!
Kevin Bernard, Orange Walk East
The OW East PUP Standard Bearer along with his team with support of his committee members, UWG, the business community has put together Food Packages that will be distributed to all 190 Families of Santa Martha Village.
As stated by our leader of the east, Mayor Kevin Bernard,
Quote “we will help every family in that village with a food package. No matter if they are PUP, UDP or don’t vote. I believe in equal and fair distribution; we will leave no one behind.”
On behalf of the PUP East Standard Bearer, we want to thank the team and members of the OW East Executive, the business community, UWG and close friends of the Mayor who have made this possible.
The Political Chairman of Santa Martha will ensure every family receives a package later today.
I can definitely guarantee that this September there will be NO Parade and No Block Party. All events will be celebrated virtually for the safety of our wider citizenry. Let’s be responsible and fight this pandemic together. Please follow all protocols and please let’s stop the discrimination and hate towards our fellow Belizeans. COVID19 knows no boundaries, neither race, religion nor creed.
So I implore on all Belizeans countrywide, to brace this pandemic by doing what is right. Stop the contrabanding, Obey the law, and the rules and regulations. Let’s protect each other.
Oscar Mira, Belmopan
BDF Soldiers and Doctor infected by Covid.
Yesterday we heard the news that five BDF Soldiers including a BDF Doctor, tested positive for COVID 19. The Belize Defense Force holds a special place in my heart. I am saddened by the news and urge the BDF to do all in its power to support these Soldiers in these trying times. I express my solidarity with the Soldiers and wish each and every one of them a speedy recovery. Stay safe my brothers and sisters. Stay safe. Shoulder to Shoulder! …Ret. Maj. Oscar Mira
It is in our hands to control, contain and defeat this virus if we follow simple but effective measures. Avoid unnecessary travel. Practice social distancing. Wash hands regularly with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if soap is not available. And of course, wear your mask but wear it properly. Let’s all do our part and support our authorities in doing theirs. Be safe and be well.///
I want to thank the good people in our Party who have donated frames for our Billboards as well as printing of the banners themselves. We appreciate all donations and I do think It looks good! Thank you for contributing to the change we so desperately need.
Prosperity and Security for All!

Andre Perez, Belize Rural South
The UDP government has signed a $10 Million USD agreement for phase 2 of the Caracol Road Project and yet Ambergris Caye, with a population of more than 20,000 residents STILL can’t get its HOSPITAL?! How long has Heredia known that he is lying to the face of the people? If Dean Barrow had not said it LIVE on the media the residents of San Pedro and Caye Caulker would have NEVER found out.
The lies are endless and the people have had enough. We will be holding you accountable, your time is up.
For years Heredia has promised the residents of San Pedro Town and Caye Caulker a piece of land. Who is actually living on this promise land? With electricity and running water?
For over 12 years, both islands have not received any housing projects. No opportunity to families so they can stop renting and own their homes.
Now we are in a pandemic and our residents continue to suffer. One of the major problems is housing. Residents of our islands had no option but leave their rented apartments because of losing their jobs and income.
Our people deserve better. Our people deserve a housing project that is affordable and one that works for ALL. Our people deserve land with the necessary utilities available not unfilled mangrove/swamp without any electricity or water.
Heredia your chance to deliver us a housing project is gone. The people are taking your lee piece a land but they will vote you OUT.
Many of our residents remain without jobs while others are on half salary. Getting children back to school has been one of the greatest struggles that parents face as the beginning of school year approaches. Both islands are in desperate need of more classrooms and an affordable education. The UDP under Heredia has been promising both islands that more classroom will come, more schools will be opened and 17 years later we are still waiting. There will be no more waiting as his time is coming to an end in 2020. #VICTORYWITHANDRE #WEDESERVEBETTER
Rt. Hon. Said Musa, Fort George
Despite the uncertainty of schools reopening due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Fort George constituency carried through with a commitment towards helping with Back to School efforts. In addition to the daily rounds and reaching out to Fort George residents, they selected lucky winners for four weeks to receive a Back to School assistance package. All that was needed as to follow the instructions. Have a great day! Winners can be found on the Fort George Pup Facebook page.
Congrats to our last four raffle winners: Angel Allen | Carilee Faber | Nicole Avilez | Mike Stands Alone (Michael Cus)
Stay tuned for more activities in the days ahead.
Remember to wash your hands, practice social distancing, and stay safe!
Ramiro Ramirez, Corozal Southwest
In San Narciso, although it was a rainy day, we still completed our task of cleaning our community police station. Sadly, it had been abandoned for several years and our village youth group today made and amazing job! This is one out of many projects sponsored by Mr. Ramiro Ramirez. Together we will bring progress to the forgotten villages of Corozal Southwest.
Also, I want to give thanks to the Libertad PUP Committee for a cleaning up Campaign that was done today at Libertad Village to minimize the risk of Dengue and malaria in the village.Keeping Beautiful Corozal South west and the rest of Belize.
El unico que representa y siempre esta con la gente de Corozal Southwest es, Ramiro Ramirez. Bajo un Gobierno del PUP y Ramiro Ramirez, tendremos la representacion que merece nuestra gente de Corozal South-West.

Hon. Francis Fonseca, Freetown
UDP CORRUPTION! UNDER THE UDP:
Elected PUP Area Representatives DO NOT have access to Land, Education assistance, Health assistance, Pantry and Boost assistance, Unemployment assistance, Food assistance, Housing assistance or Infrastructure Development assistance to provide for the people and communities that they represent and were duly elected to serve.
BUT UNELECTED UDP STANDARD BEARERS have full access to and authority over Land and taxpayers money to use in their campaigns. Illegally and unethically they go around from house to house offering voters land and government $ to be deposited into your personal bank account. THIS CORRUPTION MUST END! REJECT THE UDP! VOTE THEM OUT!
Oscar Arnold, Collet
My wonderful people of Collet as the number for Covid-19 continues to rise please adhere to the rules wear your mask wash hands regularly maintain social distancing stay at home and most of all pray to the good Lord for protection for our families and our country Belize. Be safe my people .
We donated masks and thermometers to schools in the Collet area. This will aid with their preparations to reopen for the new school year. I want to say thank you to principals Mrs. Góngora and Ms. Makhweli form Gwen Lizaraga H.S. And Unity Presbyterian Primary School. #maskup
As we celebrate another crop of graduates beginning another chapter in their young lives, I can’t help but realize that this is why I aspire to be a representative of the people. These young women and men are our future, we must ensure we build a country they can be proud of and one that they can continue to mould into the Belize we all deserve. #NHSclass2020.

Candice Pitts, Mesopotamia
Here, showing gratitude to God for the start of a new week!
Encouraging everyone to wear their masks and to follow the other health protocols to fight against the spread of COVID-19. Dr Candice Pitts, the only Choice for Mesopotamia 2020!
A leader who goes from helping to draft policies to better our lives and then addressing the nation, to a leader who goes house-to-house checking on her residents, listening, recording their concerns, and encouraging them to wear their masks, follow other health protocols, and to look after themselves and each other.
The Choice is clear!
Also encouraging everyone to #moveforward with #candicepitts #mesopotamiaschoice2020
Also, purchasing ingredients and supplies and cooking food every day is a sacrifice for my team, but it is a sacrifice we make to help ensure residents of Mesopotamia most in need can have at least one hot meal per day.
As we know, the number of COVID-19 positive cases in Belize has increased over the past two weeks from 20 to now 456 and counting. People are still jobless and without resources, and now they have to once again lock themselves in their homes for their own safety.
There are very uncertain times ahead, and food will always be a necessity.
At the kitchen, we will offer food for as long as we possibly can and for as long as it is safe for my team to do. We first and foremost thank the ladies at the kitchen for their commitment and hard work. We also thank Maja Loyd Jones and Neri Briceَño for their kind donation to the kitchen this week.
We advise everyone to kindly follow all the health protocols and to look after themselves and each other. We are all one human family, and we need each other 🙏🏽
Hon. Rodwell Ferguson, Stann Creek West
The lands department is in high gear trying to process lands documents before election that is an old tactic that does not work when the people want you out. It is time for the UDP to go. They claim they are limiting the amount of staff by sending home staff on one week rotation but bringing stalwarts from out district to do the work.//
The Government of Belize had 12 years to improve your quality of life, they had 600 million dollars from the oil revenues, 500 million Petro Caribe funding. If they had done the right thing by creating small industries, creating new markets for our products we would not have being in the position we are in today in the south. I want you to show me one project in Stann Creek West that was funded by the Petro Caribe initiative absolutely nothing.
You go to the west of the country and central Belize you see the development but again only in road and roundabouts infrastructure nothing for the improvement of the human capital. The human element should be number one in any country. They bragged about subsidy of 300.00 dollars they assisted to first and second form students in the south. They had enough to make education free from pre-school to sixth form.
I witness parents struggling to give their kids an education. I am quite aware because I assisted as much as I could, with the limited resources, I reach out as much as I can. There are those who say i don’t do enough but put your self in my shoe representing all the villages and communities 26 of them. Only the ignorant would cost aspersions and make negative comments. The election is now on the horizon and the opposite side is going around offering roofing, lumber and other building materials.
Where was the ministry of housing over the last 12 years? Residents of Stann Creek West take what you can get and vote P.U.P. The next government will be PUP working for you and we cannot afford to be in opposition in Stann Creek West.
As an opposition member I am given only $ 7000.00 dollars per month if you divided that by 9000 that you get 0.78 cents per voter dividing Forth George $ 7000.00 dollars by 1650 voters you get you get $ 4.24 per voter.
My opponents keep telling the voters I get $7000.00 per month and they are not getting their share. As I visit the villages I meet very sensible voters who do the maths themselves and realize it does make any sense The economy is ruined by this pandemic and people are really in need. I wish I could address all their needs. I do the best I can but I have grave limitation. The Prime Minister is now talking about an economic plan when his time is up.
He had 12 years to boost this economy and he did nothing as the pandemic came the country is broke. Belizeans decision 2020 is yours.
Dolores Balderamos García, Belize Rural Central
Dear residents and voters of Belize Rural Central. These are very difficult times indeed, and our well-being and good health must come first. I encourage everyone to stay safe by limiting our socializing, wearing our masks properly, and washing/sanitizing our hands regularly!! We all have to do our part to reduce and then defeat the virus. Love, prayers and best wishes to all.
Hon. Julius Espat, Cayo South
This week we had a free haircut day for kids in our community, these are some of the kids that came out to get their haircut. A big thanks to Lalo’s Barbershop, and our area representative the Hon. Julius Espat for his support in making this possible.
Allan Pollard, Queen’s Square
Everyday the numbers of positive Covid-19 cases in Belize are increasing. Unfortunately, our senior citizens are at the greatest risk during this global pandemic.
Here’s a special recognition to all the elderly residents of Queen Square. I pray that you all remain safe and healthy during this uncertain time.
I urge everyone to protect our golden citizens by wearing your masks properly in order to help prevent the continued community spread that we are facing. #planBelize #AllanPollardforQueenSquare #ProtecttheElderly #WearyourMasksProperly
Louis Zabaneh, Dangriga
Joseph Guerrero in support of Dr. Zabaneh: So Far Hon Frank “pawpa” Mena quiet on the violence against Garinagu in Honduras. Dr Louis Zabaneh gets kudos for speaking up!
Dr Louis Zabaneh, great big kudos to you. Thank you for shedding light on the violence occurring in Honduras against indigenous Garifuna. Respect!
Will you also urge your political party to take a progressive stance on the rights of indigenous people in Belize?
How wonderful it would be if Belize political parties stop making light of the rights of indigenous people in Belize. Saying the preceding does not mean you do not deserve recognition for talking about the violence against Garifuna in Honduras. Thank you!
Michel Chebat, Cayo North
Micho Chebat understands and supports the dignity and rights of women. It was a pleasure today to once again assist in the Mary’s Open Doors Program by donating a much needed stove. We applaud the dedicated team at Mary’s Open Doors for their continued service to the community.
Orlando Habet, Cayo NorthEast
Hablemos, Let’s Talk!
I thank Javier and Marisa for inviting me.
We talked about ongoing illegal voter registration and transfers from Unitedville, Teakettle, Armenia and Hopkins. Falling prey to bribery, does not help you. Selling your vote, does not uplift you. We must stand together and fight against corruption in every aspect. We must stand up for what is right and fair.
My people of Cayo Northeast, I am asking for your continued support and for the opportunity to make an actual change in our constituency once we are in Government. We have been forgotten under this administration and they have punished us.
We the representatives must serve you and push your interests forward. Only then we will be able to build a Belize that works for everyone. Todos ganamos con Landy! We all win with Landy! #VoteBlu #planBelize #planificarBelize
Hon. Mike Espat, Toledo East
Marconi Leal, Belize Rural North
The residents of BRN had the opportunity to meet and speak with me as we went house to house in the community to hear the concerns of the people and share their mandate.
Edmond Castro is all about himself! Yet poor people are getting charged for not wearing a Mask! This man has no shame! Wake up people of Belize Rural North! This man has failed in every way possible! He does not deserve to be a representative no more! Vote for a change! VOTE Marconi Leal 💙PUP
The PUP will win the next General Election! Change is coming to BRN! “Powered by the People! The Machinery is certainly fueling up! The BRN Team is ready to work and ready to serve BRN! There is lots of of work to be done but the journey continues! CHANGE is NEEDED!
