Montserrado candidate cautions against violence
Opposition Movement for Progressive Change (MPC) Montserrado County District #4 representative candidate Terence T. Doe has called on his supporters to remain peaceful until and after the electoral process.
Launching his campaign in District #4 on Saturday, 30 September, Mr. Doe cautioned that violence is never the way to success, and instead suggests that only peaceful engagement of electorate will win more votes.
Addressing his supporters over the weekend, Mr. Doe said the district will not play a nominal and ceremonial role in national politics under his leadership when he is elected.
My heart swelled with gratitude and appreciation for your demonstrated desire to see genuine and transformational change”, Mr. Doe told thousands of his supporters Saturday, 30 September.
The MPC candidate tells his supporters that change is extremely necessary to defeat the old order of fake promises and poor representation in District #4.
He names the construction of a bridge in Joe-Bar Community, the renovation of the Kaymah Town Hall, the construction of a community hall in Cowfield Block – A Community, the rehabilitation of a bridge in new Israel FDA Community and the electrification of the Du-port Road Central Market as some of his records of being passionate about development.
He further cites economic employment of self-help groups and farmers, the renovation of several intellectual centers, the provision of thousands of gallons of safe drinking water to the Whein Community as some of the development initiatives he has engaged in there.
Mr. Doe who is among 28 candidates contesting the district seat says the true meaning of representative is yet to be experienced by the people of Montserrado District #4.
He believes that if the residents of the District are dissatisfied with the representation that they have had over the years, then he is the best alternative for a genuine change and reconciliation.
He makes commitment to the practice of accountability, transparency, women and youth empowerment, community development and reconciliation.
The representative candidate cautions his audience to be mindful of the kind of choice they make at the ballot box this October, noting that their votes will determine the level of satiety about the district representation at the Legislature.
He warns that the future of the young people is so cardinal to the collective growth of Liberia, adding that the survival of the marketers, and infrastructure needs of the district cannot be ignored or pushed aside.
He also suggests that the employment of young people in his district cannot simply be viewed as central government’s responsibility.
“The decisions to move District #4 on the path of prosperity and sustained unity rest in your hands,” he says.
He commits about 40-percent of scholarship funds from the district funding or personal to technical and vocational education.
