Councillor Allan Pollard Jr. is a returning member of the Belize City Council following his previous victory in the 2018 Municipal Elections.
Pollard Jr. was born and raised on Faber’s Road in Belize City and obtained his primary level education at the Holy Redeemer Primary School. He proceeded with his secondary education at the St. John’s College High School where he graduated with a diploma in Business. He studied General Studies at St. John’s College Junior College but always found himself continuously drawn to the business field.
At an early stage in his life, Allan became fascinated with the inner workings of automotive vehicles. At the young age of twenty-one and with encouragement from his friends and family, he opened Supreme Automotive Belize in 2016, providing auto services to residents across Belize City and beyond.
His call to service led Councillor Pollard to seek Municipal Office in 2018 and a seat in Central Government in the 2020 General Elections. While he was not successful in his bout for the Queen Square Division, Pollard attained record breaking numbers for a first-time Minister Candidate. He faced one of the UDP’s longest tenured and most formidable representatives, losing by a meager margin and winning the hearts of hundreds of constituents countrywide.
Deputy Pollard went on to attain the most votes in the 2021 Municipal Elections in his Municipality and was unanimously voted Deputy Mayor at the Belize City Council’s first caucus meeting for the 2021-2024 term.
In his free time, Allan enjoys promoting young Belizean artists and hosting entertainment events for the youths across all Belizean communities. He is passionate about giving youths a voice in governance and aspires to create employment opportunities for those coming out of school.
