Recently I heard from three candidates I like who are running for Langley City Council. Fortunately, I am able to vote for all three because they are running for three different seats.
Christy Korrow is running for position number 1 (formerly held by Rene Neff, who endorses Christy). High on her list of concerns are affordable housing, emergency preparedness and opioid abuse among young people.
Dominique Emerson is running, opposed, to retain position number 2 on the council. She worked on the city’s comprehensive plan and proposes meeting its goals through preservation of our village atmosphere, creation of more affordable housing and a healthy environment.
I was also glad to hear from Peter Morton, who regrets having seen “a remarkable and unfortunate deterioration of civility in dialog” in government. He further states “Building walls, whether physical or symbolic, is a losing strategy.”
We will never see the kind of local government we want unless all the citizens of Langley participate in electing candidates who express the ideals they share. Please vote.
