MCC TV Presents Moments with Mayor Mary Broh

14 Jul

Finally! Thanks for your patience! I try to put a new episode up every two weeks like clock work but Liberia isn’t exactly known for fast internet speed (one of the many things I took for granted in the States). Here goes your interview with the Mayor!

Many of you may still have questions. If you don’t mind posting them here, I will work hard to get them answered for you as best as I can. Once I compiled the information you submitted, I wasn’t sure what was what anymore. I’m still growing and learning, but I still hope to serve you.

    First, I would like to congratulate Madam Broh and her staff for the work that they are doing in bringing City Hall to the people. I’m also pleased to hear that she wishes to promote Liberian-owned businesses. This is essential in expanding the middle class and ensuring that Liberians take ownership of their development. This is critical. Lastly, I would like to recommend to Madam Broh and her staff to check out what is going on in Kigali, Rwanda. I’ve been following the orderly transformation and development of Kigali and believe that we can do the same or even better. I think Kigali mirrors Monrovia more in terms of size and challenges than for instance Accra which is much larger. Besides, Kigali also went through a period of devastation during the Rwandan genocide. Therefore, I ask that the Mayor and her staff watch the CNN podcast: Kigali’s Clean Vision for the Future. Link provided below. I have more clippings. http://business.blogs.cnn.com/2011/04/18/kigalis-clean-vision-for-the-future/
    I think it will serve as a good motivation booster. What others have done, we can also do. Thanks for the time.

        Archel,
        Thanks for the response. Well, this is quite a coincidence. I’m sure that there is whole lot that the mayor and her team will be able to learn from the experiences of Kigali in urban development. The country of Rwanda has successfully instituted a ban on the use of non biodegradable plastic bags as a means for reducing litter and promoting the environment in general. By introducing recycling and solid waste management methods, the Rwandan government has developed entirely new industries of small businesses that are creating jobs for thousands of urban dwellers. The socio-economic impact of these policies has been visibly positive for a country that experienced similar challenges as we did coming out of civil crises. We look forward to Liberia following suit and becoming a transformative nation on the cutting edge of promoting environmentally conscious development.

        She spoke about this in one of her first letters on the site.

        Hi Archel! Great Site 🙂 I have a question that you may or may not be able to assist me with, but you more than likely will be able to point me in the right direction…

        I’m currently conducting a needs assessment for a school in Bong County, specifically Sanayea. Do you know of any officials, who could provide me with some data?

        The questions that I need answered can be found on the following page:

        Ouch, sorry, I only cover Monrovia… maybe send some questions to Desmond at the teachforliberia.org website? That’s a pretty specific area to need data for though, I’m afraid. Most places you would need to collect it yourself.

      I am very proud of this visionary Liberian leader in Mary Broh.
      She is simply amazing. I hope she would consider running for president of Liberia one day soon. Power to the Liberian woman!

    Mayor Broh I have been following your works to make Monrovia city almost like New York where you once lived.I once met with you in 2009 through then the city police chief Emmanuel Cursor.My meeting on that evening,
    I was impressed with your vision and work you are doing. I hope and pray that we can find three more Mary Brohs.All I can say to Madam Mayor Broh God blessed you and give the wisdom and vision to make Monrovia a good living city to attract more developers.
