A Trinity Western University dean will seek a seat on Langley Township council this year.
Blair Whitmarsh is the dean of the School of Human Kinetics and Athletics at TWU.
Whitmarsh said the theme of his campaign is â€œWorking together for Langley,â€ and said one of the prime duties of council is to raise community involvement.
â€œWe must hear from the community as we make critical decisions that affect all of us,â€ said Whitmarsh.
The prof arrived in Langley 30 years ago as a student at TWU. He says he fell in love with the community and has been active here for most of that time since, working and raising his family.
Whitmarsh has worked as a professor at TWU since 1996 and has been the dean of the School of Human Kinetics and Athletics since 2005.
He also helped in the design and development of the Langley Events Centre, in which TWU was a partner.
