Gray told cross sections of proponents Thursday, August 17, that the record the CDC has left in Liberia is unprecedented, therefore the party cannot afford the country to go back to its ugly past.
“We will never surrender the democratic tendency of this country to the opposition, because, we give them 12 years, and they squandered that opportunity,” pressed.
“This moment marks a significant period in our quest for a first-round victory.”
Victory is certain and nothing can stop the first round victory of the CDC.”
He said, the CDC has done so much to put the country on course, therefore, affording losing elections to the opposition will be impossible.
Consequently, Gray noted that as a continuation of campaigning to citizens not to risk the country, future, the CDC is already moving into various trenches, with Soniwein being of no exception.
He reminded residents of the area that they should begin to record how they had suffered in the past to school their children until the Weah government had to come and change the narrative to free schools and free WASSCE Fees.
At an endorsement ceremony by 32-communities women heads in District Number Eight, held at the Soniwein Community in Monrovia, Rep. Gray cautioned young people to stand up and protect their future by voting the CDC for a second term, warning that an attempt to vote for an opposition will mean, a cutoff of the good the CDC leadership is carrying out for citizens.
Gray said it is sadden that the opposition will continue to call disenchanted youths “Zogos” alleging that the Unity Party regime of Elleb Johnson Sirleaf’s government failed to pass the drug law and one of her convoy vehicles was found with drugs.
“How can you put your best player on tye bench, when others have no idea to pass a ball,” Gray opined.
“These communities remain our pepper bush and our personal properties of District Everything guy. We are the head of these communities, and those who come here, came to walk-about, therefore we will not give them credence.”
Reading the petition statement, the head of the 32-women groups, Watchen Barrow noted the the women, under the banner, the Redemption movement of electoral district 8 was founded to elect astute leaders.
“We are an organization that carried out a vetting process of qualify individuals who are desiring of contesting the seat of our district,” Madam Barrow noted.
She said the reelection bid of Representative Gray is cardinal to the growth of the district.
Therefore, according to her, following a careful vetting process, they have realized that the incumbent lawmaker is best suited for the district.
She said Rep. Gray has demonstrated more reasons, through his representation at the house to be reelected.
Among these reasons Barrow noted are, improving the public health sectors in the Soniwein and Slayway Communities, buttressing the efforts of parents to pay the school fees of their children in the district.
Also, she noted that Gray has created an enabling environment at schools in the district, primarily Soniwein and MCSS, identifying with fore victims, noting that she is a direct beneficiary as well.
Madam Barrow added that besides, the above-named, Gray continues to promote the talents of young people through various sporting and talented sectors.
Besides, she said the incumbent lawmaker has also been instrumental in economic empowerment in the district, thus providing loan schemes for marketers and women of the district, at the same time creating job opportunities for youth in the district.
She was also quick to emphasize how the construction of a park in the district was made possible through the lobbying effort of Gray, which now serves as a recreation center for all.
“Thereby, having given you these reasons, the women group of the 32 communities in the district unanimously endorse the reelection of Representative Gray,” Madan Gray noted.
