A protege of UDP Area Rep. John Saldivar, in August 2008 Belisle unsuccessfully challenged the incumbent, Simeon López, for the UDP nomination in the 2009 municipal election.[1]

Belisle secured the UDP mayoral nomination in Belmopan in 2015 and won in a five-way race, succeeding López.[2]

Belisle appears on the official Educo Seminar website, which appears in the footer of the Belize Natural Energy website, that claims Belisle has attended a seminar and became the youngest mayor of Belmopan because this goal was "made into a program".[3][4]

Belisle indicated he was returning to being a private citizen, stepping down from the race for the Belmopan constituency in December 2022.[5]
