Angie Quaale vows to ‘ask good questions’ if elected

Angie Quaale, Langley’s 2013 Business Person of the Year, has formally announced her intention to run for a seat on the Township of Langley Council.

Quaale has been a tireless community booster for many years and will run an optimistic campaign with the theme “Asking good questions that lead to positive results.”

“I love this community,” said Quaale in a kick-off message posted to her campaign’s Facebook page today.

“Our Township is an outstanding place to live, work and play, and I’m passionate about making it even better.

“As a new councillor, I think I can serve you best by asking good questions that lead to meaningful discussions and positive results. By that I mean questions that open our community up to new opportunities and ideas.”

Quaale’s campaign will focus on three key areas: agriculture, transportation and economic development. In her message she shared what she sees as the most important questions facing the Township: “How can we build on our strengths in food production and land use as the agricultural centre of the Lower Mainland?

What can we do to improve transportation within the Township so we can all get around more easily? How can we maintain the right balance between residential, agricultural, commercial and industrial development so we can grow in ways that preserve our great quality of life?”

Quaale promised voters that as a councillor she will “bring an open mind, ask thoughtful questions, and work on your behalf to find answers that lead to positive results. I believe there are so many ways to make the Township an even stronger, more successful community.

Together, we can build on our winning spirit, thriving culture and rich heritage to make our community the best place to live in the province.”
