Rep. Mensah Dedicates Community Projects

first_imgRep. Moima Briggs Mensah By Patrick C.M. KollieIn less than eight months after her election victory, Bong County District #6 Representative, Moima Briggs Mensah, has constructed and dedicated over six community development projects.With some high profiled governmental dignitaries, the Bong County lawmaker recently dedicated a number of town-halls, bus stops and pit-latrines.The dedication exercises were performed in various locations at the project sites. Communities that benefited from Rep. Mensah’s gesture are J.K. Morris Town, Belle’ta Community and Wololonta Community. Others are Kpakolokoyata Community, which benefited from a bus stop, and New Totota Community, which received a pit-latrine.Also, an individual beneficiary community received materials and cash from the female lawmaker. According to Rep. Mensah, the initiatives are part of her community development program, which she promised the constituents during the 2017 elections campaign.“Those projects are funded from my widow’s mite, even though some of my good friends put in some cash; nothing came from the government or legislative support projects,” she said at the program.The female lawmaker then encouraged communities that benefited to take ownership of the projects by maintaining them while she sources  more funding to support other bigger projects.In separate remarks, beneficiary community leaders lauded her for the initiatives, terming the gesture as the first and fastest approach ever since the electoral district #6 was created by Act of the Legislature for a sitting lawmaker to respond to the needs of the citizens.During the dedication, Rep. Mensah received several praises and honors that included gowning and presentation of gifts. Deputy House Speaker Prince K. Moye encouraged the residents to see the initiatives as the best approach by their lawmaker in enhancing development.Moye called on them to remain engaged with Rep. Mensah in identifying and developing other projects that will help government improve the living standard of economically impoverished Liberians in that part of the country.Rep. Mensah came to political relevance through the popular votes she received from the people of district #6 during the 2017 representative elections when she won as an independent candidate, defeating incumbent lawmaker Bill Corneh.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
