At the young age of 35, Mr. Javier Molina brings passion and fervor to the political arena. Not being from a traditionally political family, he is untainted by preconceived notions and mindsets. His ideas for progress and community service are fresh and uncorrupted and he is emboldened and stirred as he sees the wheels of democracy turn, eager for his opportunity to add to its revolutions.
Javier is the eldest of five children, born and raised in Belize City. He is a devoted Catholic and family man, married to Orissa Obando for the last 14 years, and father to a son, Javier Molina, Jr. and a daughter Xavissa Molina. They presently reside in Tropical Park, Hattieville, where they have been for the last ten years. Mr. Molina’s education began at St. Ignatius Primary School and continued at St. John’s College and St. John’s Junior College. He also has a certificate in Apple Production Suit. He spent a solid 16 years as the operations manager for the Catholic TV Apostolate in Belize City.
Javier Molina has been a man of service and involvement. He has held key positions in international organizations such as OCLACC (Organización Católica Latinoamericana y Caribeña de Comunicación) in Ecuador as an executive member and served as Vice President for Signis Caribbean (Caribbean Association for Catholic Communication) in Trinidad and Tobago. He also is a founding member and past President of the Belize Audio Visual Industry Association and past Vice President of the Judo Association of Belize.
He is ready for the heat of politics – as a volunteer for the Belize Fire Service, he has fought infernos and is ablaze with a passion for making positive changes in his community and country. His eyes are on his immediate surroundings first, serving as a committee member of the Tropical Park Neighborhood Watch. He also serves on the board of his children’s school, Belize Elementary.
As a talented film maker and photographer, he will bring a unique skill set of creativity and imagination to the political arena. His work has been recognized and rewarded by the Rotary Club of Belize for outstanding contributions to the films Choices and Risking It All – two titles that could easily encapsulate the essence of this new venture in his life. If you desire relevant change, heart, humility and honesty, Javier Molina needs to be your choice for Belize Rural Central.
