Dear Mr. Editor,
Thanks for the offer to allow Liberians share their views with the public through your institution. I write to let Grand Bassa County Senator Nyonblee Kanga Lawrence know that making a research before commenting on a matter is cardinal to doing the work Grand Bassa people elected her to do. I read in the 29th edition of the Daily Observer suggestion by this Senator to cancel the first Saturday schedule set up by former Mayor Mary Broh to clean the city of Monrovia; something that disappoints a lot.
Even the common man or woman, who is not schooled in the academia knows that cleanliness is good and healthy, and despite their differences with former Mayor Mary Broh, the people of Monrovia highly welcome the first Saturday schedule to clean their environment for a few hours. This is something that no one has ever raised qualm about. But for the Senator to question its constitutionality and oppose it, basing her argument on difficult economy is quite unfortunate. This proposal by the Senator to cancel the day only shows that she is an enemy to progress and does not seem to be appreciative to what opposition does, but wants to oppose, reject, and show ingratitude even if there is no need to do so. I know even prior to this letter Senator Nyonblee Kanga Lawrence had withdrawn this unprogressive suggestion as the rest of her colleagues who are equally bitter with Mary Broh could not buy.
Senator Lawrence should know that the City Government is here to govern in accordance with the Municipal Law of the city, and he/she in line with Article 12 of the Constitution can design a plan and enforce it with consent of the citizens to do what is good for them and for the city. This is not force labor or slavery, but something that every resident of Monrovia is glad about. Let not the Honorable Senator politicize development for thing she has no reason having interest in.
