Women, Elders, Christian, and the Muslim communities gathered on the 30th day of October 2020 to endorse his senatorial bid on the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) ticket.
He noted that their decision is in compliance with Article 17 of the Liberian Constitution which states that “all persons have the right to assemble, associate fully with others or refuse to associate with a political party, trade unions, and other organizations.”
He said their gathering was in fulfillment of that as he stressed “We gather here today in fulfillment of that, and also in line with our political democratic and inherent right guaranteed by Article one of the Liberian Constitution which gives us the power as people and citizens to choose or elect who should be our leader or who should be given our power or votes.”
Mr. Dennis said motorcyclists in the County having known Hon. Jones is one of their kind.
He said their lawmaker is truly a grassroots as he started off riding a motorcycle, got involved in petite business thus becoming an entrepreneur, and has ascended to Representative of district #2.
He said due to his ascendency and love for his kinsmen, they are pleased to recognize and show a sign of gratitude to him for his splendid performance as a Representative of Margibi County for the last two and a half year.
He narrated that it is due to the leadership ability of Rep. Jones that the people of district two can boastfully talk about a well-constructed district office, the establishment of the District Two Development Council (DTDC), and the ongoing completion of a police station in the Barclay Farm Community to enhance security in the area.
Additionally, Jeremiah averred that the Lawmaker’s consistent humanitarian effort has contributed to the human resource development through the provision of scholarships and financial aids to deserving individuals in the District and the County at large.
He named the ongoing construction of additional four classrooms for the elevation of the Charlesville Public School to a full senior high school, the continuous and persistent provision of street lights for the citizens of Cotton Tree, and the donation of medical materials to all public health facilities and some private health centers as some initiatives of Hon. Jones in a period of two and a half years.
According to him, the Lawmaker being developmentally oriented opened a modern radio station called “Farmington FM” in Congo Town, Cotton Tree to enhance information dissemination across Margibi and Liberia at large.
Jeremiah Dennis on behalf of the group vowed that as they go on their feet serving as campaign ambassadors and foot soldiers for the CDC Candidate, they will leave no stone unturned until he is elected Senator for Margibi County comes December 8, 2020.
