While members of the Liberian Legislature continue their annual break, others may be using the break to give back to the electorates who had earlier entrusted them with the authority to serve them.
One of such Legislators, Montserrado County Senator Geraldine Doe Sheriff, is out and about in the county promising to construct a town hall for the residents of Royeville at the cost of US$76, 000.
In an interview with this paper at her Capitol Building office in Monrovia, Sen. Doe-Sheriff disclosed that the construction of the town hall is the request of the township dwellers, noting that it would help the process of dialogue and vital engagements among the people.
According to her, the amount for the construction will be under-written by the Montserrado County Development Fund as the county's contribution to the initiative, while the rest of the funds will be provided by her office.
She noted that through lobbying in the United States, a team of medical practitioners is due in the country as guest of Montserrado County to conduct free test, free medication, as well as distribute prescribed eyes glasses.
The medical team, from the State of Atlanta, has planned to deal with a huge number of patients, and that if everything is well, the team would return to the country to engage the entire country.
The team will also provide medical consultations to help prevent damaged sight. "This group is here to help to treat them free of charge; we are not paying a cent, and they will also create awareness on how to prevent sight defects," she said.
She disclosed that her office was about to engage in a major clean-up campaign to affect key parts of the county known for unwholesome activities.
The Montserrado County Senator pointed out that following the campaign, she would launch a town hall meeting throughout the county in order to explain to the people bills passed, saying those in committee rooms will also be discussed for the input of citizens and residents of the county.
