MONROVIA – The former Mayor of the City of Brewerville, outside Monrovia has died of Covid-19 in New York, United States of America.

According to family sources, Mr. George Varney Curtis, who is also a defeated Representative candidate in the 2017 general and presidential elections died during the early morning hours of Tuesday, May 5.

On July 18, 2017, Mr. Curtis resigned from the Alternative National Congress (ANC) of Alexander Cummings after he lost the party’s primary to Mr. Abraham C. Sesay few months to the elections.

He contested the elections on the ticket of the Vision for Liberia Transformation (VOLT) party and came third after he accumulated 5,675 votes equivalent to 14.5% of the total number of valid votes cast, behind the winner, Hanson Kiazolu of the Unity Party (UP) with 7,924 or 20.2%.

In his letter of resignation, Mr. Curtis claimed that the party allegedly “failed to uphold the tenets of democracy which it claims to be built and is seeking national leadership positions in the context of wanting to give the country the best it deserves”.

“To some, you were a father of few, but us that know, countless you fathered. Humility was what you offered; even those who were below the belt. An entrepreneur of Humanity you were, trading kindness for backbite to those who despised. Your anger was like morning dew, Fading away when the daylight of compassion emerged. Even your political rivals mourn. For our hearts bleed with grief, and our eyes deluged by tears. You have been an asset all these years.”
