Reports say Grand Gedians residing in the United States of America, Australia, Nigeria, Ghana, and Liberia have petitioned one William Khon Glay to contest for the senatorial seat of Grand Geddeh County in the upcoming 2014 mid-term election.
The group under the banner ‘Friends of William Glay’ said, “As a well connected man, a former regional forester, as well as a former representative of Legislature, we believe in Mr. Glay, due to his vast experience and proven leadership ability.”
It was revealed by his supporters that Glay would bring a ‘viable representation’ to the table if elected.
Glay’s fans believe that electing him in Senate would bring about the continuation of brighter days for Grand Geddeans, a situation they are said to have enjoyed before the Liberian civil war.
The group’s statement further said, Glay’s leadership would buttress an agenda for job creation, better farm-to-market roads, adequate schools and affordable healthcare services for the people of Grand Gedeh.
Receiving the petition, Glay expressed his thanks and appreciation to the organizing committee for their thoughtfulness and sense of gratitude.
The former law maker said he was deeply honored by the citizen’s request and promised to make a comprehensive response at a possible time.
Concerning their endorsement he explained: “The request brought tears to my eyes because you all realize the importance of power and how it should be channeled to bring about improvement in the lives of the people of our county.”
