I first came to Langley in 1984 to attend Trinity Western University. Since that time, I have actively engaged in the Langley community with my wife and three daughters. I am also proud to be a grandfather of 5 living in the local area. My council experience started in 2014 and with the endorsement of Mayor Jack Froese I am putting my name forward to be Mayor of the Township of Langley. As Mayor, I will focus on five overarching themes: smart development - diversity of housing - and job creation, safe neighborhoods and communities, healthy relationships with community partners and neighboring municipalities, outstanding facilities for sports and the arts, and financial stewardship. We must have a strong community with local jobs, care for the environment, and livable communities that make us all proud.
