A Christmas Message: From Aspiring Montserrado Senator, Celia Cuffy Brown

                                                                                


Warm greetings to everyone celebrating Christmas.

During this blessed season, so many beautiful words are woven through our Christmas songs and prayers and traditions. As we celebrate this Christmas, let us remember the women of Liberia.  Women of Liberia go through severe economic hardship. Many educated and professional Liberian women earn less salary than our male colleagues, while rendering the same services or even better.  There are many other issues which affect women in Liberia. These issues can only be addressed in the house of senate by women being a part of the decision making process of Liberia. The reality is, as we aspire to join the house of senate, we may have to lose our current jobs in order to join the race. While this thought is scary, as it will put us and our families through severe economic hardship as we campaign for Senatorial Seats during the 2014 special election, let us not feel discourage. We can only change the socio discourse of Liberia through our participation of the decision making process, by holding unto our convictions without being discourage. Let us do all we can to win many seats in the house of senate. Even if it means losing our current jobs or positions to be part-taker during the 2014 senatorial race for the house, then so be it. The same God, who gave us the courage to step forward, will take us through, to the end of our journey. Remember, Philippians 4:13 “we can do all things through Christ which strengthened us”.  I wish you all merry, merry Christmas and a prosperous new 2014.

Celia Cuffy Brown

Liberia: Spoon Tv Has Been Accused of Being a Government Operative

Spoon TV has risen to prominence as a platform for unfiltered news, political viewpoints, and social concerns. Unfortunately for the television network, the recent visit of their team to Liberia has led to some people questioning their objectives and ethics, which is unfortunate for them. Check out few post on the subject from fans around the world. "This is your Spoon TV Crew in Liberia hobnobbing with the CDC Government. My issue is not that they are meeting the Government. I believe in constructive engagement and the Government represent all Liberians. My issue is, this is the same Spoon TV that faults everybody of being in cohort with the government once they hear gossip about you being friends with the CDC folks. This same Spoon TV was disrespectfully calling out my name on their wretched show to come and appear because Jerome Verdier accused me of meeting with Jefferson Koigee and George Weah, as if it is a crime or sin to engage the CDC government or even know or talk
