By Prince J.C. Morris ( pmorris@selnanews.com )

Harper, Maryland County - The scene was colorful on Saturday March 11, 2017 when dozens of Partisans and well wishers of the Alternative National Congress (ANC) converged at the Party's Headquarters on Hance Street, Harper City, in what seemed to be an elaborate and mass general meeting. During the meeting, a newly founded auxiliary group named United Citizens for Cummings (UCC) was officially presented to the leadership of the ANC for admittance into the party.

During the presentation of UCC members to ANC's hierarchy, Mrs. Ade Elliott-Ledlum, Chairperson of UCC encouraged all partisans and members of her group to remain steadfast in supporting Mr. Alexander B. Cummings' 2017 presidential bid. She added that since it was founded, UCC has conducted civic and voters' education throughout the four administrative districts in Maryland County. "We observe that citizens of Maryland County, like all other counties in Liberia were feeling hesitant to participate in the voters' registration. We designed a voters' registration campaign strategy through which, we trained 30 volunteers who conducted civic and voters' education throughout the 4 districts in Maryland County" concluded Mrs. Elliott-Ledlum. A total of 62 members of the United Citizens for Cummings were present in the meeting.

For his part, Mr. Thomas Bedell, ANC's Regional Coordinator for the Southeast applauded the leadership of ANC, UCC and partisans in general for their level of commitment and unity. He encouraged all members and auxiliaries to work together for the common good of the party in Maryland County. Mr. Bedell also stated that Mr. Cummings is a Marylander and must be supported by all Marylanders regardless of their political affiliations.

In furtherance of the euphoria, Mr. Wakla Neufville, acting Chairman of the ANC in Maryland County vowed to do everything possible to deliver Maryland County in the hands of Mr. Alexander B. Cummings come October 2017. Speaking in an optimistic tune, Mr. Neufville praised the mobilization arm of the party and welcome all UCC members to ANC.

In attendance of the meeting was Harper District Representative hopeful Mr. William W. Wallace, who expressed his intention to contest on the ticket of ANC. According to Mr. William Wallace, the ANC has set of rules and  regulations for primary, and if the rules applied properly he will defeat his opponent in the primary and eventually the Harper District representative seat.
