Enders Presents 3-Yr District Report

By Bill W. Cooper
Montserrado County District 6 Representative, Samuel Enders, has presented his three years in office report to his constituents
Presenting the report, the District 6 lawmaker bragged of doing more for the district within the reported timeframe despite the limited financial allocation given him.
He stated that since his ascendency as lawmaker of the district, his office continues to work tirelessly in order to ensure a better and perfect representation of his people at the Legislature and the country at large.
In his three years comprehensive report, Rep. Enders named the ongoing construction of the first ever district office, LD700, 000 as financial aid for students and his advocacy to ensure that damaged transformers are replaced in various communities and blocks as well as the payment of district teachers and the renovation of the public school in the district.
Others are the pavement of various community roads; the construction of bridges, markets, hand pumps and offices including loan to business women, educational support/scholarships supports to sports and the donation of 150 bundles of zinc to be distributed to various communities affected by disasters among others.
The Montserrado County lawmaker admitted that during his first year in office, he and his entire staff were at learning curves so he did not propose any law to directly affect the district but he co-sponsored some bills and resolutions that were passed.
Enders explained that he collectively joined efforts with his colleagues during the sitting of the 2017/2018 recast national budget as well as contributed to the subsequent passage of the 2018/2019 national budget.
He further reported that upon assuming office, the Mary T. Broh School constructed by his predecessor turned over a zero balance account thereby inheriting unpaid teachers with four months arrears, but indicated that in line with his mandate, he committed his office paying the arrears for the over 25 staff of the school; something which he said has been regular.
He explained that aside of the many light poles and meters bought for several homes within the district by his office, he along with members on his committee are tirelessly engaging the Liberia Electricity Cooperation (LEC), the African Development Bank and European Union for the approval of the Electricity Financing Agreement for the Paynesville Joe Bar to Cotton Tree corridor; a project which he said will see about 46,000 homes electrified within that vicinity.
The Montserrado District 6 lawmaker intoned that amongst the 80 bills that were introduced in 2019, on August 8, during its 50th day sitting, he introduced a bill entitle “An act to establish the Carver Christian University and grant it a chatter, emphasizing that said bill is now being discussed in a committee room pending its subsequent passage by the Legislature before being send to the President for approval.
“My follow district residents, let me register here that I did not sign that budget which amounted of US$560,000,000 that was passed in 2019 by the Legislature and subsequently approved by the President because one of the country’s renowned and outstanding hospitals budgetary allotment was drastically reduced and that is the John F. Kennedy Medical Hospital; from US$6,076,924 to US$5,645,451 without any valid reason,” he revealed.
“To buttress government’s effort in the area of construction, we did the SD. Cooper Road, Kpelle Town Community; Zeon Town and ELWA, Zoe-wolor bridges. The GSA Rock Hill Community, LBS Lover’s Street road, Nangbe’s Town (13 loads of dirt’s) and the Thinker’s Village, Borbor Town Youth Hall roads; the Zoe-Wloh Town Community; Gaza Script Community (Well); RLJ-Kendeja Community and SKD Community Water Project are among some of the pumps done by our office,” Rep. Enders reported.
