- Charlyne Brumskine accepts petition
By Jerromie S. Walters
Cllr. Charlyne Brumskine, the daughter of the late Liberty Party political leader Charles Walker Brumskine, has accepted a petition from residents of Grand Bassa County District #3 to run for the office of representative in 2023. She has promised to repay the residents of the district for their trust in her by providing good governance and making significant changes that will have an impact on their lives.
On Sunday, December 11, 2022, during an elaborate ceremony, Cllr. Charlyne Brumskine accepted the endorsement from the people of the Buchanan District, while attributing the underdeveloped state of the district to bad governance and promised to make changes where necessary if she was elected as the district’s next representative in 2023.
She expressed her dismay at the lack of development in the district and referred to the moment when the endorsement was given as a moment of liberation for the people of Buchanan.
In addition, she is of the opinion that Buchanan District and Grand Bassa County in general have the potential to be more developed than they are at the present time; however, this potential has been squandered due to poor governance practices carried out by previous leadership.
The young female aspirant referred to her own personal experience from several interactions with the women of the district when she stated that the women are beset with enormous challenges that range from the inability to maintain a comfortable living condition to the difficult circumstances that they must endure for the survival of their children.
She has made a commitment to restoring hope for the women of the district, and she has stated that none of these things can be accomplished if the residents of the district are unable to muster the courage to embrace a new breed of leadership.
She went on to say that the absence of strong leadership has had a detrimental effect on the dignity of the county and has torn apart the unity that the people of Grand Bassa once enjoyed a number of years ago.
She made it clear that the people of the district hold the power to change the unfavorable impact, and that this power resides primarily in their ability to choose the appropriate leader.
She described herself as having a distinct political style and ideology, one that she holds as a Liberian and not just as a member of the Liberty Party or as a daughter of Grand Bassa. She also said that she was not interested in being president.
“We are not engaging in politics in the traditional sense; rather, this time around, we are saying no to bad politics and yes to good politics.” She went on to explain that she was there to show support for the CDC, the Liberty Party, and the Unity Party.
Cllr. Charlyne Brumskine is currently in position to be fed as the Liberty Party (LP) candidate in Grand Bassa County District 3 in 2023 if it goes in her favor at the level of the Liberty Party. This is the current status of the situation.
