Two Langley residents run for Township council under one banner

Clint Lee and Kerri Ross have announced their candidacy for the Township of Langley council for the civic election scheduled for November.

Clint and Kerri are the president and vice-president, respectively, of Live Langley, a grassroots party founded on the basic principles of openness, accountability, and sustainability.

While running on independent platforms, Clint and Kerri have teamed based on their mutual desire to create a truly livable and successful community for each and every citizen.

“It is time for a change on Township council,” said Lee. “It is time to have councillors who are ready to consider all citizens of Langley. We need councillors who proactively approach sustainable development based on a comprehensive, well researched, and premeditated strategy of what is best for all of Langley.”

“This election is the tipping point for how the transformation of the Township of Langley evolves,” Ross said. “I am ready to be the voice of the average citizen and protect our community from decisions based on whims or dollar signs. We are committed to representing the citizens Township of Langley with integrity, transparency, and accountability.”

Lee is managing partner at Nexus Intellectual Property Law. He holds a Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alberta, a Bachelors of Commerce from the University of Victoria, and a Juris Doctor from the University of Victoria. Lee has coached for the Langley Minor Hockey Association for the past six years.

Ross has a planning and resource management background.

The Willoughby resident has lived here for 11 years. She was a Venturer and Rover with Scouts Canada and is an avid outdoor person.

She lives in the fast growing area of the Township and has seen the strain that puts on a community. She pledged to be more engaged with voters if elected to council and advocates more bottom-up planning to create sustainable growth.
