Langley councilwoman won’t resign early as planned

Langley City Councilwoman Rene Neff won’t resign this summer as planned.

Neff made the annoucment during Langley’s regularly scheduled council meeting Monday evening at the United Methodist Church. She said she’s reconsidered since a story appeared in a recent edition of The Record.

“I’m going to serve out the rest of my term,” she said.

Neff is in the last year of her third term on the council. It expires Dec. 31. Earlier this year, rumors began to fly around town that Neff was going to resign following a controversial sanctuary city vote. When contacted by The Record, she denied the claim but said she was planning to step down by summer for personal and family reasons.

In an interview after Monday’s council meeting, Neff said she reconsidered for several reasons. Not only have people urged her to remain, but she said it would be difficult for a replacement to step onto the council.

“It’s not a good time, so I’m going to stick it out,” Neff said.

She added that while she will fulfill her term, she won’t file for reelction.
