Councillor Javier Castellanos

Economic Development, Small Business, Trade and Investment

Javier Castellanos was born and raised in Belize City. He was educated at Queen Square Anglican School and Nazarene High School before going to what was then the Belize technical college and the University of the West Indies.

In his professional life, Javier served as a photographer and scenes of crime expert in the Belize Police Department. He also worked with the US Embassy before going into the family’s restaurant business.

As a businessman working to provide for his family, he has experienced firsthand the lack of opportunities and the challenges faced by entrepreneurs. This sparked his interest in working to improve the economy of the city.

He is determined to be a part of the change, and a part of a team which will work with the people to fix all that has been lacking in the city.
