Letter: Langley Mayor Froese ignored communities

Dear Editor,

I was fascinated to read about Township Mayor Jack Froese running for re-election [Froese running, June 24, Langley Advance].

At what point did he work “with” the residents, as he has been quoted as saying? At every turn he voted in favour of whatever any developer wanted, and not what the residents wanted.

At what point did he work together with the community? He speaks about the Brookswood/Fernridge OCP and says much more consultation with the community is required. This is blatant political speak, as even after the huge and unprecedented movement against the Griffiths neighbourhood plan and that Brookswood/Fernridge OCP, he and Councillor Grant Ward were the only ones to ignore what the community’s wishes were, and voted in support of that developer-friendly plan.

We can only hope that we get to make choices in the upcoming election, before our paradise is completely paved over.

Don Tocher, Brookswood
