Letters: Put history on campaign trail

Dear Editor,

I hope we will see more attention directed towards protecting and preserving Langley’s history through this election. It seems that, so far, previous councils and many current contenders intend to strip Langley of its past and rebrand it into some new, unrecognizable form, all with the intention of enticing future residents and developers.

It doesn’t seem like much, if any, focus or respect has been given towards the people who live here now, many of whom have been here for multiple generations and have been a part of building Langley from the beginning.

Langley is an amazing place to live, and has been for decades. Hopefully, we can find a candidate to vote for who will look towards building on what we have now, instead of allowing things to deteriorate to the point that they need to be torn down and recreated.

Emily Whaley, Langley
