Leader of the Opposition Speaks On his Party’s Mass Defeat

As we noted, both Trapp and Fernandez are the only two UDP candidates who were voted into office countrywide in last week’s elections. 

As we noted, both Trapp and Fernandez are the only two UDP candidates who were voted into office countrywide in last week’s elections.  It is a massive loss for the United Democratic Party (UDP).  Party Leader Patrick Faber, however, is not dismayed by the outcome of last week’s elections.  As a matter of fact, he told the media that this is no small accomplishment.

Hon. Patrick Faber, Opposition Leader: “You heard me remark this morning that in fact I singled out Bernadette Fernandez because of her leadership not only in this town but in fact the entire country she is the epitome of what we’d like to see in our female politicians and I say that because it is Women’s month but also we would want to see in our politicians in general. So it is no small accomplishment when these two people are sworn in here in this magnificent municipality. Rather than dwell on the potential negatives I’d hope that we can look at the potential of the positives that can come. I think that Earl Trapp has been a magnificent Mayor he’s a magnificent example of what the new mayors and I believe we have mostly new mayors across the country except Rigo Vellos I think all the others are new and Earl is now the most senior mayor in all of our municipalities so it would be a good thing, a wise thing in my view. And he’s not just one of those mayors who are returned just like that he has a good record of work and so if the powers that be as you put it would be positive I think they can utilize Earl’s experience and his knowledge of politics but knowledge of the people, his humility and all else he brings in the package that is Earl Trapp I think that can work well for even the People’s United Party.”
