Rudy Storteboom seeks re-election to City council
Rudy Storteboom is seeking re-election to Langley City council.
He is finishing his first term as a councillor. He plans to run a low-budget campaign that is in keeping with available resources.
He is proud of recent council accomplishments, including three balanced budgets, new Al Anderson Pool facilities, 208 Street reconstruction, the new Nicomekl Bridge and paying off the City’s debt. Through good financial management with government partnerships and available grants, new infrastructure is being built with exceptional value for City taxpayers.
He has been a City resident for 28 years. He worked at the credit union, the vacuum store, the coffee house and he is a currently licensed realtor with Macdonald Realty-1st Pioneer in Langley. He is a recipient of the Realtors Make Good Neighbours Award.
“As a realtor, I do more than sell real estate. I help individuals and families find homes in communities,” he said.
“People want a balance of practical services with reasonable taxes. People want to feel secure and at home where they live.
“A strong local economy is the basis for a good quality of life that allows us to invest back into our community with our time and our resources. A prosperous city has low crime, good jobs, sound infrastructure and affordable housing in safe neighbourhoods near excellent schools and clean parks with quick and easy access to transportation options, popular amenities and good quality health care services.”
Storteboom is concerned about longer and more frequent trains running through the City, which brings increasing challenges to transportation efficiency and concerns for public safety. He supports way-finding strategies and electronic train alert signs to help direct traffic away from level train crossings, and the City's commitment to partner in three new overpasses on the Lamgley-Surrey border.
Storteboom believes that “councillor” is a position to hold for others and not a position to have for yourself.
He believes in open government that values public input, and supports using new technologies to connect with residents and support business in the City.
He can be reached by phone at (604) 530-4111 or (604) 534-7148 or through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
He also has a website: www.rudy4council.com.
He will also be at the Starbucks-Valley Centre location most Friday evenings during the campaign for coffee and conversation about what is best for the City of Langley.
