The newest Langley municipal party has chosen four candidates for the coming November elections, but will not reveal names until later this summer.
Clint Lee of Live Langley said four potential Township candidates have been chosen internally.
Lee said itâ€™s always possible some of the candidates may not be able to run by November, so the names wonâ€™t be released immediately.
So far, the party is only contemplating four candidates, rather than creating a full slate of eight council candidates and a mayoral candidate.
â€œWe donâ€™t want to be perceived as a party that wants absolute control,â€ said Lee.
As the groupâ€™s executive director, Lee said heâ€™s still not certain if he himself will run.
â€œIâ€™ve gone back and forth,â€ Lee said.
The group has also not yet decided if it will run a mayoral candidate. So far the consensus is that the party will not.
â€œBut that may change,â€ Lee said.
Live Langley is opposed to the bulk of the current Township council, having been formed out of residents upset with a number of recent land use and rezoning decisions.
Problems with the ongoing development of Willoughby, the Coulter Berry building controversy in Fort Langley, and approvals for projects such as the Trinity Western University District caused the group to come together last year.
The group was mostly formed out of opposition, and Lee said they are discussing what they do to move forward with positive solutions.
The group has recently seen much of its executive leave.
Lee said Brad Richert stepped down for health reasons, while Andy Schildhorn and Diane Morrison left as they were stretched between many commitments.
Lee said the group is now looking for both new executive members of help run the group as well as regular members. The party is holding a pub night at the Artful Dodger pub in Brookswood starting at 7 p.m. April 11.
