UPDATED: At least eight vying for Langley City council seat

There is just one council seat available in the byelection.

  • Jan. 20, 2016 7:00 a.m.

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

Kiernan Hillan, Serena Oh, and Rae Anne Maj are all 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.

Serena Oh ran for Langley Township mayor in the 2014 election, coming in third. She cited homelessness and parks as among her key issues.

The new candidates join Nathan Pachal, Sharon Newbery, Mel Kositsky, George Roman, and Carol Gran. The byelection will be held on Feb. 27.
