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.
â€œIâ€™ve been thinking about it for probably a year or so,â€ Quaale said. She made up her mind just after Christmas, she said.
â€œI feel like I have a lot to offer,â€ said Quaale.
Sheâ€™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 people around the community to understand what theyâ€™re thinking in the run-up to the election.
Quaale said she isnâ€™t going to run on a slate, but will be completely indepdendent. 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.
