Can’t wait to have Christy Korrow on the Langley City Council

Editor,

Christy Korrow will be a perfect Langley city councilwoman. Women like her have kept Langley thriving for a century, all the way back to the all-woman council and mayor in 1920; they’ve cared about the quality of life for their neighbors, from sidewalks and public safety to civic projects and tending everyone’s needs — from kids to elders. They’ve been smart, tough, resilient, fair and kind. Like Christy.

Yes, the Village by the Sea counts on tourists for cash flow, but Langley isn’t just a “tourist town.” It’s our town. Visitors may come for our shops but they feel something else here. It’s us, an engaged, interconnected, tolerant town with beautiful farmland and community gardens and unique affordable co-housing enclaves and street life and cafe society and theaters and healers and homegrown businesses like the Machine Shop and restaurants. It’s the vitality of our citizens, with our serve local and buy local ethic, that keeps us prosperous.

Christy is right in the trenches of this aliveness. Her capacity to listen to all points of view, to dig in to the details of current ordinances and zoning, to be a professional, and to work hard for others puts her right in the lineage of who and what Langley is. I, for one, can’t wait to have Christy Korrow on the city council.
