Froese jumps into lead

With 13 of 15 polls counted, incumbent Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese has built a strong lead over challenger Rick Green.

Technical difficulties have got in the way of getting polling results from Brookswood and Aldergrove.

Froese defeated former mayor Green to take his seat after a three-way race, in which Green finished third, last time out of the gate.

Both Froese and another challenger, then-sitting Councillor Mel Kositsky (who is running to regain his council seat this time) topped Green in the 2011 elections.

With the two polls left to count, Froese has 11,810 votes to Green’s 6,736 and Serena Oh’s 1,138.

Leading the polls for councillor seats at this point are David Davis, Kim Richter, Petrina Arnason, Charlie Fox, Michelle Sparrow, Blair Whitmarsh, Angie Quaale, and Clint Lee.

Leading the polls for the Township’s five trustee seats on Langley School Board are Alison McVeigh, Rod Ross, Megan Dykeman, David Tod, and Rosemary Wallace.
