Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor has made her first official visit to Bong County since her inauguration ON January 22, 2018.

According to a press release, as part of her initial contributions to addressing some challenges in the county, Vice President Howard-Taylor presented one hundred thousand Liberian dollars to a group of students for a project and two hundred and fifty thousand Liberian dollars as scholarship fund for underprivileged students in Bong County.
The release quotes the Vice president as further committing herself to the construction of a modern library in the county. She also presented a Toyota Pick-UP for use by the traditional council of Bong County as appreciation for their support during the election that brought CDC to power.
VP-Howard-Taylor used the occasion to call on the superintendent designate, Madam Esther Walker to do an assessment of the payroll of local county officials and see how others could be factored into the process if the need arises.
However, the Liberian Vice president has spoken of the need for the county to go back to the soil, as this was the surest means of being self-reliant.
She believes that if everyone in the county gets actively involve with farming activities, unemployment issues will not be a challenge as majority of the young people will be employed on these farms.
