Gospel artist turned politician, Kanvee Adams, over the weekend assured her supporters that she will defeat her opponents at the ballot box in the 2017 representative and presidential elections. Adams is contesting against 12 others for the lone Montserrado County District#6 seat currently occupied by two-term Representative Edwin Melvin Snowe, who is reportedly contemplating canvassing for votes in Bomi County Electoral District #1.
Ms. Adams spoke at a brief, but well organized program her supporters held to officially endorse her to contest shortly after she returned from the U.S. The ceremony was organized by ‘Friends of Kanvee Adams’ in collaboration with community leaders in Kissi Town, GSA Road, outside Monrovia.
Mrs. Adams said the people of the district should see her as their hope for real and positive change.
Kanvee, as she is widely known, challenged the women of District #6 to consider her as their strength that God set aside to usher in not only a new platform, but productive leadership.
“If I succeed or lose, don’t forget that it will reflect on you,” Mrs. Adams told her supporters, with women particularly calling on her to bridge the gap of what she termed as ill-representation at the House of Representatives. She called on them to turn out in their numbers on October 10, 2017, to vote her in.
Kanvee promised to craft a Student Loan Bill so that young people graduating from high school will be able to attend universities and pay back after graduation.
She said as a Christian, she is not deterred by what people say or do, “for my mission to redeem the residents of the district from poor representation that has brought so much suffering rather than alleviating poverty through policy-driven agenda.”
“I am not here to boast of what I have done for anyone or the district, but I am very certain that some of you here can attest to my little contributions to education where I have provided scholarships to deserving students, catering to the old folks and listening to the many cries of less fortunate citizens,” Mrs. Adams said.
For his part, the chairman of the ‘Friends of Kanvee Adams,’ Charles B. Weah, extended an open invitation to eligible voters in the district to join Kanvee’s campaign to experience transformation.
“We are aware of the many names that are vying to represent us in the House of Representatives, but we are optimistic Kanvee’s impeccable character and her willingness to serve will adjudge her opponents incompetent,” he said.
Over 200 persons, including representatives of the Money Exchangers Union and Motorcycle Union, graced the event.
