Paye defeated incumbent Jonathan Banney, becoming the first to walk out of the chamber of the House and into the Senate.Paye’s seat was announced vacant by House Speaker J. Alex Tyler on January 22 and with that notice, NEC was authorized to conduct elections for the post.Addressing a news conference yesterday in Monrovia, Acting NEC Chairperson Cllr. Sarah M. Toe, disclosed the arrival in the country of 24,200 ballot papers for an expected 16,003 registered voters at 42 polling stations across the district.Commissioner Toe further informed reporters that 200 temporary staffers are being processed to serve as poll workers and shortlisted pollsters are to be trained to conduct polling activities on Election Day, April 21, 2015.The Commissioner announced that 44 national and 26 international observers have been accredited to monitor the election process, lending the necessary element of credibility to the polls.“About 840 independent candidates and political party agents have also been accredited to observe the voting process. Among institutions accredited by the Commission thus far are the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES), United States Embassy, African Union, European Union, UNMIL, UNDP, the Catholic Justice and Peace Commission (JPC) the Elections Coordinating Committee and the Angie Brooks International among others,” Commissioner Toe announced.Meanwhile, since the campaign was officially declared open on March 25, “there has been no official report of rancor or misbehavior either on the part of the candidates or their supporters,” Madam Toe indicated.She called on all participants in the process to remain peaceful and tolerant in order to keep the democratic process on course. “We call on registered voters in Electoral District #2, Rivercess County to turn out en mass and vote for the candidate of their choice,” she declared.All eyes are on the Rivercess County electoral district comprising 19 voting precincts and 42 polling stations for the more than 16,000 anticipated voters.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Last fall, the city added a similar patrol. In the first year of operation, that unit was credited with making 363 arrests, including arrests of three murder suspects and 12 arrests of people suspected of assaults with a deadly weapon. In September, the City Council approved converting four community service officer positions from the sheriff’s contract into city jobs. The goal is to free up deputies from routine chores so they can concentrate on investigating crimes and arresting suspects. The community service officers handle tasks such as taking reports on minor, nonemergency crimes; taking fingerprints; answering phones; issuing parking citations; and directing traffic at crash sites or special events. For the past four years, the city has contracted with the Sheriff’s Department for the four officers, but for each of the past two years the county has not been able to fill two of the slots. PALMDALE – Palmdale is looking to add a two-deputy, 40-hour patrol team to its sheriff’s contract. The two-deputy team is what deputies refer to as a “bomber” car, a unit that can patrol without being diverted to routine calls. The team can be used to focus on particular high-crime areas or to look for particular crimes. “It’s a preventative type measure rather than going after crime after it’s been done,” said Councilman Mike Dispenza. The addition of the unit is expected to cost the city $153,000 for the remainder of this fiscal year, which runs to June 30. last_img read more
