Since his defeat in last year’s presidential and general elections, former Senator of River Gee County Nathaniel Williams is once again crocking harder at some of the happenings shaping the destiny of the county, specifically clarifying some mis-information regarding his position on Cavalla Rubber Corporation (CRC.)
Contrary to claims that he was acting against the investment interest of the two companies, the former firebrand lawmaker who is credited for the creation of the county of River Gee said he was not opposed to the CRC investment, but that he was against their method of development in the county.
Without explaining or expanding on the method in his view CRC had employed, Mr. Williams only argued that River Gee was a county of vast investment of industry where he would prefer companies that serve and deal in the interest of his people.
He said the people of the county don’t belief in long term investment with out the people benefiting anything from the long term serve in the county.
Speaking to newsmen Monday in Monrovia that CRC, formerly Firestone has been operating in Maryland and Margibi Counties for years now but failed to protect the interest of the people, emphasizing “the people of Maryland will not give their support to any companies that will not have direct impact on their lives.”
Criticizing the policy of the company, he claimed the company was able to one hand pump in the community of over twenty two houses.
Not saying what he did to address that problem during his tenure as Senator, Mr. William blamed the man who defeated him and other contenders, Senator Matthew Jaye for spearheading the CRC campaign in the county.
According to him, Sen. Jaye served the CRC as manager before he election to the National Legislature as senator of River Gee County.
