As part of his legislative engagements with his constituents, Montserrado County Electoral District #8 Representative Acarus Moses Gray has provided over L$500,000 and several assorted items to scores of residents within his district.
According to our Legislative Reporter, the CDC lawmaker recently toured several communities, including Soniwein, Buzzy Quarter, and Bassa Communities, among others.
Representative Gray said the tour is in accordance with his oversight responsibility and also intended to sit and discuss with his constituents; something he believes will give his people the opportunity to outline their key challenges and find an amicable solution.
The Montserrado County Electoral #8 lawmaker presented an initial amount of US$1,000 to the Soniwein Community, adding that the cash is intended to enable the community’s leadership to clean their drainages.
He also donated 100 bags of cement and US$300 to fire victims in the community and handed over 10 bundles of zinc receipt to the Buzzy Quarter leadership, stressing that the money is aimed at renovating the public latrine in the area.
Representative Gray further made available US$400 to the bereaved family in the community and promised to provide a flat screen television, including two sets of Jerseys to the Friend for Success and Social Intellectual Center in Soniwein Community.
He promised to reconstruct the intellectual center and furnish it with modern equipment for its members.
He also expressed regret over what he termed as the horrible living conditions of residents in some parts of his district during the Rainy Season, noting that the situation is one of the major priorities of his honorable office.
Representative Gray has at the same time presented a receipt of 100 bags of cement and an amount of US$300 to fire victims whose homes were reportedly set ablaze recently by some unscrupulous individuals.
The CDC lawmaker also presented an official receipt of ten bundles of zinc to the Buzzy Quarter Community Chairman, James Gordon.
Representative Gray further vowed to recondition the community public latrine to what he calls a standardized level, adding that the current condition of the facility does not represent the commuter residents in that part of his constituency.
Additionally, the CDC lawmaker during his tour, paid a visit to a bereaved family in Bassa Community, where he consoled and sympathized with a family who lost their daughter, Patience Banwon, terming the unfortunate situation as a great and irreplaceable loss, to not only the bereaved family, but also the district.
He at the same time made an initial contribution of US$400 to the bereaved family, thereby promising to give at least ten bags of 25kg rice.
