For 2020 Senatorial Election…Rep. Marvin Cole Eyes Bong Senate Seat
Bong County: As the 2020 Senatorial Election draws nearer, Bong County District#3, Josiah Marvin Cole has vowed not to surrender the County Senatorial slot to those he considers as ‘enemy of development’ in the county. “I will not surrender Bong County Senatorial slot in 2020”.
The National Elections Commission (NEC) is expected to conduct a senatorial election in 2020 to enable constituents across Liberia to elect a new number of senators to the Legislature.
The Jorquelleh District #3Lawmaker alluded to several mistakes of the past including the 2018 senatorial by-election which he said will not be repeated adding that the Coalition for Democratic Change will be robust in claiming the 2020 senatorial seat.
Rep. Cole who did not name any specific person indicated that some lawmakers in the county are completely anti to the development of Bong County.
He told his constituents that “gone are the days when political hustlers exploited the goodwill of the people who provided them the enabling environment they enjoy nowadays”. I will not negotiate with a hustler to surrender the county senatorial seat in the 2020 election in the country”.
Relatedly, Rep. Marvin Cole reaffirmed his commitment to electrifying Gbarnga city. As part of road network across the country by the CDC led-government, the pavement of the Gbarnga Broad Street is ongoing and it is expected to be dedicated soon.
Hon. Cole had earlier promised to electrify Gbarnga before the 2018 July 26 Independence Celebration in the county but failed to live up to his commitment in the county, in which he was heavily criticized by his own constituents, and many have described him as a fake lawmaker who has failed the district in terms of development.
Representative Cole told cross-section of citizens in Gbarnga not to panic over the electrification of Gbarnga, adding he will do everything possible as Lawmaker of the District to bring the solar panel.
The Bong County Lawmaker is at the same time calling on his critics to put aside their differences and join him in developing the district and the county at large.
