MONROVIA: As part of her national engagement exercise to speak to citizens across the country in support of good governance and competence in public service that will bring meaningful development to the country, the Vice Standard Bearer of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP), Cllr. Charlyne Brumskine has urged the people of Grand Bassa County “to make an informed decision and choose leaders who will bring about development and progress to their county”
Speaking at the first National Gowning program of the GF-CYMOL held in Buchanan yesterday, Sunday, September 17, 2023 where she attended and served as the Guest Speaker, Cllr. Brumskine expressed concern that the county has been left behind in terms of development compared to other counties due to ineffective representation and poor leadership.
As a Vice Standard Bearer of the CPP and also a daughter of the county, she reminded the audience that she’s merely a vessel on the ballot paper. It is ultimately the people of Bassa Lands who have the power to bring about change and development in their county.
The hardworking politician reiterated the CPP’s commitment to prioritizing the needs of the people. She emphasized the platform of the CPP on good governance which she said focuses on bringing a government that will work for the betterment of the people and ensure their voices are heard.
While still in Grand Bassa County, Cllr. Brumskine, made a stop at German Camp, and the people expressed their regret for not fully and sincerely supporting the late Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine, her father who was indeed an outstanding politician and a pride of the Bassaland, which according to them they are fully regretting.
Speaking later on behalf of the district, the elders, women, and youth called on their people to correct their mistakes and undoubtedly support the CPP. Also, the traditional chief priest Philip Thompson praised the VSB for not allowing the Liberty Party to fall, as was the wish of some people. He then assured their unflinching support for the collaborating political parties (CPP).
Cllr. Brumskine, who is the daughter of the late Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine, the founder and former Standard Bearer of the Liberty Party is fast stepping in the role her late father played during his lifetime as a leading political figure with a strong root in Grand Bassa County from where LP since its formation has drawn its numerical strength.
Affectionately called “Gbosayu”, which is translated in the Bassa language to mean the Child Left Behind, upon her formal entry into party politics, registered her intent to contest the District #3 representative seat under the platform of LP and in recognition and appreciation of her late father’s contribution to the county, major stakeholders including traditional rulers, elders, women and youth groups and other influential individuals and institutions gave her their unflinching support and endorsement to vote her enmasse for the position with no stress.
While the deal was being sealed, the young lawyer accepted an offer to go as the running mate to Alexander B. Cummings, standard Bearer of the Collaborating Political Parties(CPP).. Since this upgrade of her ambition, Cllr. Brumskine has endeared herself to the people of the Bassa land by being passionate about what is obtained in the area in terms of development that will change the livelihood of the people.
