Langley City council candidates invited to public forum

A voters forum is the only scheduled debate in the City.

An all-candidates meeting for the Langley City byelection will be held the afternoon of Feb. 22 at the Langley Senior Resource Centre.

Organizer Sylvia Anderson said the event starts at 1p.m. in the large hall the centre.

“It’s basically for seniors, but anyone’s welcome to come,” Anderson said.

There will be a seniors focus on the meeting and questions.

The two-hour event will start with opening statements and questions to the candidates, then be followed by an informal mingling in which voters can talk to the candidates one-one-one.

The Langley Advance has sent 10 questions to each candidate for publication in an upcoming issue of the paper.

There are nine candidates for the single Langley City council seat. The byelection was sparked by the retirement of the late Dave Hall.

The candidates are:

• Shelley Coburn

• Carol Gran

• Kiernan Hillan

• Mel Kositsky

• Rae Anne Maj

• Sharon Newbery

• Serena Oh

• Nathan Pachal

• George Roman
