Letters: Dismay in negative attitudes

Dear Editor,

There are many aspects of Langley that are great, some good, and yes, some not so good. I am dismayed by the lack of positive outlooks by a few nominees currently seeking election within the TOL.

There are a few that seem to be “one issue” candidates while a few appear to be disgruntled with Langley.

Langley is not perfect, but is it a great place to live. It is unfortunate that there are those seeking election that can only dwell on the negative.

I believe Langley has had enough negative publicity prior to our current mayor. Langley has gone from a leaderless, ridiculed, stagnant municipality to one that has flourished under its current leadership and is moving forward in a positive and respectful manner.

This is the direction that Langley should continue on, not regress back to a municipality that was fodder for Greater Vancouver news outlets.

Kelly Holmes, Fort Langley
