An Aspirant for ward 358 in the Kissy community under the SLPP, Madame Mary Margay, has told Awoko that she has a lot of developmental programmes for her ward which she intends implementing if elected councillor for the ward.
According to Mary Margay, she has decided to contest the pending local council election because she wants to serve humanity and share her talent in an effort to make a difference.
She said she intended working with the people in her ward in bringing development to the ward “because, together we work, together we shall succeed”.
The ward covers the Kissy Mess Mess, By-pass Road and the Looking Town community.
Mary Margay disclosed that over the years, the Looking Town community had been neglected and that when elected she would lobby government and other development partners to help link that community and other communities
Mary Margay has been an educationist for years. She disclosed her plans for the girl child education in her ward. “I will do my best to promote the girl child education in the ward. Children in this community have been deprived of their needs especially in the area of education and when elected as councillor, I will put premium on that”, she said and continued that she would ensure that there was a good secondary school in the community.
The ward she is contesting for has had serious problems with regard youth unemployment. “Youths are unemployed in my ward and there is greater need for skill training centre where youths could be allowed to learn trade that could make them self-reliant”, she noted.
Mary Margay is confident of winning the councillorship in the ward because she has always tried to be at the forefront of development. “I have served the community in various ways. As secretary for the Kissy Grassroots Development, I have ensured that six primary schools are constructed for the Kissy community. I have dealt with street children and youth issues in the community and I know the problems of the people”, Madame Margay said.
“I have worked with the Planning and Development Committee in the Looking Town community and we have been able to construct a water dam for that community. My only expectation from people therefore is for us to forget about party politics and look out for development. I have development plans at heart and I am appealing to them to give me their support”, the aspirant said.
