Montserrado County Electoral District #11 Representatives, Richard N. Koon, says under his leadership, the district has made significant progress both in health and education, noting that his people now enjoy better health centers and services.
He says in his first year in office, he prioritized the two sectors because they are very important to the needs of the people.Reporting to his constituents on Sunday, 13 January at the Barnesville Town in the suburb of Monrovia, Representative Koon details that during the period under review he donated drugs, an ambulance and medical equipment to various health centers across the district.
He says District#11 now has a loan scheme that residents may benefit from, especially people involved in small businesses to improve their undertakings.
He promises to continuously lobby for assistance for the development and growth of his district, assuring that the plight of the people will always be highlighted at the House in seeking their welfare.
However, Representative Koon, who is also a lecturer at the state-owned University of Liberia, notes that he had gone at the Capitol with the perception that the House of Representatives is a place where money falls from heaven, but disappointingly, this is not so.Koon defeated incumbent lawmaker Gabriel Nyenkan in the 2017 elections to take over District#11 as its direct Representative in the House.
