Please vote.

Please vote if you are happy that you were able to afford a home in Willoughby, or Aldergrove or Walnut Grove or anywhere else in the Township.

Please vote if you rent in Langley and you like where you live.

Please vote if you understand that the Township of Langley also has responsibilities to the region we all live in.

Please vote if you can see beyond new development growing pains.

Please vote if you are interested in participating in the future rather than living in an unsustainable past.

Please vote if you work and live in Langley because you have a greater stake in this municipality than many others.

Please vote if you want your children or grandchildren to be able to live and work here when they become adults.

Please vote if you want your aging parents to be able to live in Langley.

Please vote if you are trying to make a living by farming in the Township.

Please vote if you think cooperation and compromise, as well as respectful disagreement are necessary for a functioning government.

Please vote if you are satisfied with what you see happening in Langley. Don’t let only the naysayers and the disgruntled decide who we are to be governed by.

We get the government we deserve. If you think you deserve good government, then please vote.
