Business owner goes for Langley Township seat

A Langley entrepreneur is among the first to officially throw her hat into the ring for a bid at a Township council seat.

Angie Quaale is the owner of Well Seasoned, and a past president of the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce.

“I’ve been thinking about it for probably a year or so,” Quaale said. She made up her mind just after Christmas, she said.

“I feel like I have a lot to offer,” said Quaale.

She’s been in business in Langley City for 10 years with her gourmet foods store, which has also hosted a number of community events.

Quaale said her time on the chamber board has brought her a number of skills she can bring to the council table.

She is now attending council meetings on a regular basis and is talking to residents.

Quaale said she isn’t going to run on a slate. She is planning to have a website up soon at angiequaale.ca about her candidacy.

The vote will be held in November, possibly alongside a referendum on TransLink funding. There are eight positions on the Township council, plus a mayor.

There have been few other declarations of intent by those running for office this fall.

The new Live Langley party announced last year that it would run a group of candidates.
