Letters: Difficult to pick a good mayor

Dear Editor,

After attending two Langley Township Forums for the up-coming civic election I have decided the Township of Langley has three very bad choices for mayor in this election.

Jack Froese tries to sell our parks/green spaces to fund other projects, does not listen to community input, and does not fight for more transit for Langley even though we pay our share to transit.

Rick Green fights with his councillors and excludes them – but he is at fault for all the above, as well. Has he learned a lesson?

Serena Oh: sorry, but she cannot understand the questions, so she cannot understand her constituents – and her constituents cannot understand her replies.

Some of the newer councillors I can vote for – but not for a mayor. What a conundrum! Surely we could have done better than this.

Ras Gosse, Langley
