Hon. Morris with Congresswoman Hon. Betty McCollum of the  4th District of Minnesota
Welcome to District # 1
Welcome to District # 1

I am humbled by your trust and grateful for the confidence you have reposed in me to serve you as Representative of this great district-District # 1 Montserrado County. I have set up this website for the district as a means of monitoring and evaluating activities as they relate to my vision, my campaign promises and the job you sent me here to do as representative amongst others. This website as you may see will serve as an image of everything I am doing and intend to do for you my people of this District. It will serve as a means of coordinating communications and activities amongst our local leadership and Commissioners as often as possible so that you, our people, will be aware of all that is going on, both in my office on the Capitol Hill and in other leadership structures in the district. The website brings with it additional opportunities for all of us, especially the youths. I encourage you to therefore make maximum use of your visit to this site any where you are. The site is up 24/7... Welcome once again!

In most part of  Liberia,  District  1 Montserrado County being no exception despite its proximity to  Monrovia, bad road is one of the characteristics that better describes the hardship Liberians are regularly exposed to each year.

As the rainy season gradually sets in again, major economic activities will become permanently hindered because of bad roads, leaving fruits and vegetables of commercial value to rot while on their way to market.
It is against this concern that Representative Morris embarked on the reconditioning of roads in the district to help alleviate the problem.  See slideshow of communities that recently benefitted from the Honorable's initiative-in partnership with some foreign partners but  no support from Central government whatsoever. Join our partnership team and help build our beloved District.

Todee district tour: Water challenges
One of the distinguished characteristic of Representative Morris's leadership never before seen in the district is his ubiquity- the tendency of being present with his people at all times since his election to the office of  Representative.
Todee district, one of the prominent districts that makes up electoral District # 1 was again toured this Monday October 22, 2018 by the Honorable to begin the process of building water supply capacity to major towns badly in need of pure drinking water.

Accompanied by a Canadian Water company called LIFE WATER on his tour,  Representative Morris assured residents the provision of safe drinking water.to help conclude the ever-lasting water challenge faced by the district.
Charcoal made from recycled materials
One does not need to be an environmentalist or a global warming expert to understand the devastating effect of deforestation as a result of our total reliance, for a country like Liberia, on charcoal for cooking; and this is the line and direction the District #1 Representative Morris Lawrence has been thinking ever since he was elected Representative of the District.

In his efforts to circumvent deforestation directly related to the use of charcoal for cooking, Hon. Morris together with a team of local recycler have manufactured charcoal from recycled waste, an end product that is 85 % more cost effective  then traditional coal.

He made the pronouncement on Saturday October 19, 2018 in Fendell where he was invited by the LMDI-Dialogue team to address victims affected by the demolition of homes carried out by the past government under the leadership of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
