Letter: Langley City candidates meeting key

Dear Editor,

As a Langley City taxpayer since the early 1980s and planning to vote in the by-election, I would like to know if there will be an all candidates meeting or debate hosted?

I believe voters who participate in civic elections, few that they are, would like to have an opportunity to enquire about the candidates’ position on certain challenges before the city.

One of the concerns I harbour is the ever returning amalgamation debate with regards to City/Township that occurs at general election time.

This will not be an issue for this election in general, however I would not like to see us provide the Township with a proactive City councillor who would support amalgamation.

If memory serves me, Mel Kositsky supported the amalgamation attempt some time ago, I would also question Serena Oh on her position. Both were or are involved with Township politics.

The other candidates I have little recollection of.

Carol Gran from days gone by has stepped up to the election bid, hopefully she will bring ideas and an outlook that’s not from days gone by.

Rest assured I have no agenda, other than to see if we can have an opportunity to pose questions to these individuals with regard to the running of Langley City’s interests.

I hope everyone with the right to vote comes out and participates in this vote Feb. 27. Remember this is the first level of government with their hands in our pockets.

M. F. Campbell, Langley City
