Phoenix, Arizona – Montserrado County District #1 Representative Lawrence Morris is expected to swing another development package to transform his District into an oasis of opportunity and a model district that will be referenced and emulated across the entire country in terms of economic and infrastructure.

In the state of Arizona, on last Wednesday, Rep. Morris had a “Lobbying Meeting” with some officials including former Senate Minority Leader Leah Landrum Taylor, who is currently serving as the Assistant Director of Arizona’s Department of Economy Security, about the challenges facing Montserrado County District #1, especially in the areas of sanitation, roads and food production. 

Other in attendance were Mr. Cloves Campbell, Director for African American Affairs in the Governor’s Office, former Arizona State Representative and owner of Arizona Informant Newspaper; Mel J. Hannah, member of the Governor’s Board for African American Affairs, Dr. C.T. Wright of the ACAAA, Phoenix, Arizona, and Dr. Robert Sherman, Professor at the University of Phoenix.

Arizona is a U.S. State in the southwestern of the United States.

“I did address officials of the State of Arizona in the Arizona State Congress making the case to take on initiatives to model my district and within a timeline of four years. They agreed and within 6 months, we should start seeing the boots on the ground independent of the government getting involved. This has been my pitch in my visits about lobbying from the USA government and State officials. Great things are ahead, and new heights are coming,” Rep. Morris said.

He added: “I want for Montserrado County District #1 to be the Model District in the country in term of trade, education, health and self-sufficiency in food production.”

Also, the Montserrado County lawmaker had revealed of meeting a Liberian, Phil George and a native of Kingsville in District #1, who now lives in Providence, Rhode Island.

Rep. Morris added that George has agreed to construct a “modern market” in the Township of Kingsville.

“The meeting with Mr. George was meaningful and l am optimistic that there will be other people in Kingsville who will contribute to the development in Kingsville in Liberia,” the lawmaker enthused.

It may also be recalled, Tamba Boimah Hali, a Liberian-born millionaire who has plied his trade in the National Football League (NFL) of the United States of America (USA) has agreed to construct a modern Automatic Poultry farm on a 72-acre of land in Montserrado County District #1.

The modern Automatic Poultry farm is a partnership between Mr. Hali and Rep. Morris and it is aimed at stimulating the economy of the country and create jobs.

Rep. Morris is the Chairman on the House’s Committee on Refugee, Repatriation and Resettlement and the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Lawrence Morris Foundation. 

Prior to becoming a member of the House of Representatives of the 54th Legislature, he was the Resident Representative of the Mano River Union (MRU) in Liberia.
