While Mayor Wagner and his ten councilors swore their allegiance to the City today, there is still some organizing to do. Wagner says they are still to decide how the portfolios will be distributed among the councilors. That, he says should be sooner rather than later.
Bernard Wagner, Mayor of Belize City: “We continue to work hard on that since coming in to office last week Thursday I’ve been pretty tied up with a lot of issue especially with the inauguration that is over now and I will be able to sit down with my councilors and we plan to cal a caucus as soon as tomorrow and we will work out those portfolios. I believe I have a competent team so I’m not pressured in area because I feel that whoever I put at any desk or department they are competent enough to deliver.”
