Members of a professional trade union styled Brothers Wood Inc. in electoral district#5, Paynesville have vowed to ensure the re-election of Representative Thomas Fallah for a third term in the district.
Reading their petition statement recently to the lawmaker, the Secretary-General of the union, Mr. James K. Fayiah said they decided to petition Representative Fallah because of his numerous contributions to the district and its people since his tenure.
The petition identified among other things, provision of scholarships to ordinary Liberians most of whom are studying abroad, micro-finance loan to destitute Liberian businesses, human resource and capacity building for hundreds of residents.
According to the Brothers Wood Inc. members, they and their dependents, including wives and children, totaling over 1,000 are determined to campaign for Representative Fallah’s third term bid in next year’s elections.
They cautioned opposition candidates vying for the representative seat of the district to be mindful as they are determined to support Representative Fallah to the letter and ensure that he returns to the Liberian Legislature in 2017.
The petitioners also disclosed that through the leadership of Representative Fallah, their district has witnessed overwhelming development, including improvement of roads, support to hospitals and clinics, construction of modern market and provision of motorbikes to unemployed motorcyclists within the district.
“We will go where Fallah goes and we will also galvanize our merger resources to support the coalition in every way humanly possible to defeat any opposition candidate”, they vowed. Earlier, the group’s Chair on Grievance and Ethics, Mr. Charles Harris, presented a symbolic wooded key of the district to Representative Fallah, reaffirming their commitment and unflinching support.
Receiving the petition, Representative Fallah expressed gratitude to all residents and supporters of the Congress for Democratic Coalition for their continued support, which he said, would produce the needy political results in 2017.
However, he lashed at critics that are against the merger of the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC), National Patriotic Party (NPP) and the Liberia People Democratic Party (LPDP).
Representative Fallah bragged about his development and social contributions toward the growth and development of the district#5, and pledged additional developmental package, if re-elected by the people.
