Grand Bassa County Senator Jonathan Kaipay has begun a 20-mile road rehabilitation project in Glakon Statutory District #2 in the county.
Senator Kaipay, who launched the project in Waka Town, in Harrisville Ward, John River City in the district, last weekend, said the project is in fulfillment of his campaign promise, based on the slogan, “Development Is Now.”
Kaipay pointed out that the project, which will cost over US$10,000, when completed, will lead from Waka Town through the Civil Compound of Yeablo Administrative in District #2 A.
He called on the residents of the district to take direct ownership of the project by helping the workers with at least safe drinking water and other needed essentials to encourage them to complete the work in time.
A 2017 aspirant representative of Electoral District #2, James Brooks, pledged L$25,000 toward the completion of the project.
Mr. Brooks contested for the post two times to represent the district, but did not succeed.
Grand Bassa County Electoral District #2 lawmaker, Mary Monceemah Karwar, lauded Senator Kaipay for the initiative and pledged to provide two drums of fuel oil to facilitate the implementation of the project.
