Kiernan Hillan is a council candidate for the byelection in Langley City.

Six vying for Langley City council seat

The seat was left vacant by the departure of the late Councillor Dave Hall.

Two more locals have thrown their hats into the ring for the Langley City council byelection.

Kiernan Hillan and Rae Anne Maj are both running for the seat left vacant when the late Dave Hall stepped down late last year.

Hillan is a former municipal roads manager for the city of Richmond, and has volunteered locally with groups including the Langley Hospice Society and St. Joseph’s Charity Committee.

He said he wants to stretch local tax dollars further and promote a balanced transit approach for drivers, cyclists, pedestrians, and users of public transit.

Maj is a local who was appointed to the City’s board of variance committee for a three-year term in 2013.

The two new candidates join Nathan Pachal, Sharon Newbery, Mel Kositsky, George Roman, and Carol Gran – who was first to file her papers. It brings the roster up to at least six people who are expected to be running in the Feb. 27 byelection.
