Senator Taylor Calls For Unity In Bong

By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, May 18 (LINA) - Bong County Senator Jewel Howard Taylor is calling for collaborative efforts among lawmakers and citizens for the upward movement of development programs in the county.

Senator Taylor said the collaboration that will promote development in Bong County must be one that is void of all forms of vices, including confusion, petty jealousy, envy and greed for power.

She attributes the slow pace of development in the county to the lack of vision by certain individuals in leadership, cautioning them to pray for a vision that will help develop the county.

Addressing citizens of Jorquelleh District last Friday when she visited the farm of Mr. Melvin Salvage on the Kokoya Road, Taylor urged citizens to elect people who will in unity work to implement needed project across the county.

“As you go to the special senatorial election in October this year, I call on you to shine your eyes, do not elect people who need the position for the sake of getting a job, but rather those who have the desire to serve you, the county and Liberia at large,” Senator Taylor told the gathering.

The Senator, who is seeking a second term following nine years in the Upper House, admonished Bong citizens to emulate the good examples of Mr. Salvage whom, she said, without government job has been able to cultivate huge portion of rubber farm for himself.

“I was provoked on many occasions by the level of achievements made by this young man who without anyone’s support from anywhere has firmly establish himself in the private sector as a rubber farmer; this venture is worth emulation,” she noted.
