Cllr. Charlyne Brumskine Declares Intention for Grand Bassa Dist #3
MONROVIA – Liberty Party, Cllr. Charlyne Brumskine has declared her intention to contest in Grand Bassa District #3 comes 2023 on the ticket of the Collaborating Political Party (CPP).
She said the move follows consultation with immediate family, friends, and well-wishers.
Excerpt from her communication “After prayerful and careful consideration and lengthy deliberations with my mother, Estelle V. Brumskine, the widow of the late Brumskine, my fiancé, Mr. Charles C. Dennis, my brothers, Mr. Charles W. Brumskine and Mr. Walker P. L. Brumskine, my children and extended members of the Brumskine family, as well as members of the Liberty Party, we have decided that this is the right decision at this time.”
The communication addressed to the leadership of the LP further that “We believe that a duty is owed to the people of Grand Bassa County, Partisans of Liberty Party, and the legacy of the Late Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine to serve the interest of the residents of District 3, Grand Bassa County.
“We know that this was a dream that Cllr. Brumskine had all of his life—to fight for the amelioration of the lives of our people. I share a similar dream and wish to employ all skills, blessings, and resources to improve the lives of our people in Grand Bassa County”, she said.
The Grand Bassa district #3 aspirant, Charlyne Brumskine, on October 7, launched one million Liberian dollars towards education through the Brumskine Family foundation, which aims to empower young Liberians and help needy students of Grand Bassa County.
LP founding political leader Charles Brumskine is Charlyne’s late father, he has been entangled in a long-standing legal and political battle that has seen the Supreme Court rule in Musa Bility’s favor as the legitimate chairman of the party despite attempts by Senator Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence to have him expelled.
The political impasse has seen the Liberty Party factionalized, with Senator Karngar-Lawrence of Grand Bassa County and Monsterrado County Senator Abraham Darius Dillon supporting the presidential ambition of the standard bearer of Unity Party Joseph Boakai, while Bility on one hand is supporting the presidential ambition of the standard bearer of the Alternative National Congress (ANC) Alexander Cummings, who was nominated as the standard bearer of the CPP.
It has been left to see which side of the divide would Charlyne choose to contest ahead of 2023.
