Support the incumbents for Langley City Council

Editor,

The current Langley City Council is doing a phenomenal job. They respectfully debate the current topics. They spend tireless hours listening to each and every person who wishes to speak at council meetings. They research the issues, they do not have hidden (or not so hidden) agendas and they get things done, with the best interest of the citizens in mind.

What they are doing is working. Langley is thriving. Happy people are enjoying the restaurants, stores and services. The businesses have record revenues, which in turn enables the council to budget even more money to the services our citizens want and deserve.

I strongly endorse the sitting council. Thomas Gill brings years of institutional, municipal and technological knowledge, and his age, 35, will help the city identify with the younger demographic. Dominique Emerson contributed greatly to the comprehensive plan and her work on the planning advisory board will help guide the city during the anticipated growth. Burt Beusch brings his extensive executive management and financial strengths as well as fresh ideas to Langley.

Let’s keep the proven team in place.

Respectfully,

ROBIN BLACK

Langley
