Before ending his tenure as Mayor of San Pedro Town, Daniel Guerrero announced that the Town Council had honored all of the past six mayors by renaming some streets in their names. A check with current Mayor Wally Nuñez, indicated that the new streets name are in the process of being gazetted to make the names official.
Be it declared that the San Pedro Town Council announces the following changes:
•The Boca del Rio Drive (Beachfront) is renamed the Gilberto “Chico” Gomez Promenade
•Marina Road is renamed the Pedro Salazar Drive
•The West Road connecting San Pedrito to San Pablo Areas is renamed the Baldemar Graniel Drive
•The Northern Road from the Sir Barry Bowen Bridge to the northern tip of Ambergris Caye is renamed the Hon. Manuel Heredia Jr. North Road.
•Crocodile Drive, which is the road that leads into San Pedrito Area, is renamed Alberto Nunez Drive.
•The South road from Victoria House to the southern end of Ambergris Caye is renamed Elsa Paz South Road.
In his farewell speech before exiting the San Pedro Town Council Daniel Guerrero stated: “Under my term, I was better able to appreciate that true statesmanship must transient party colors and we must respect the accomplishments of our past leaders. For that reason, for the very first time in our island’s political history, I brought together all the past councilors and mayors. Not only as a show of appreciation but to indicate that I was always willing to listen to the advice of past leaders.
Unfortunately, we lost two great leaders in our community who have served this town with dignity and respect – Former Mayors Mr. Alberto “Beto” Nunez and Mr. Gilberto “Chico” Gomez. I shared quality time with both former mayors, consulting as the Mayor. Together with our community, we gave both our Mayors a respectable and honorable tribute. It has been my strong conviction that we must learn to appreciate and thank those who have come, served, and departed.
For that reason, I wish to go a step forward in honoring all six of our former Mayors by renaming and properly naming some streets.”
