Kim Richter announces campaign for mayor in 2018

The Langley Township councillor is currently serving her sixth term on council

Langley Township councillor Kim Richter has announced she intends to run for mayor in 2018.

According to an ad set to run in the Langley Times on Nov. 15, Richter is running in the next municipal election on the basis of needing “the best government for everybody in Langley, not just for the select few.”

“Enough is Enough,” the ad states.

“Two weeks ago, six of the nine current members on Langley Township Council (including the Mayor) voted to say it’s okay for elected members of council to bid on Township work, get Township work, and have their businesses benefit from Township resources while on council.

“I believe this is not OK.”

In B.C., municipal voters will go to the polls on Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018.

Richter was not immediately available for comment.

More to come.
