Don't forget TransLink tax boosts

Editor: With municipal elections just around the corner, I would like to remind my fellow Langley City residents about a great disservice to us.

Our mayor, Peter Fassbender, recently voted without consulting us to increase both property taxes and gas taxes for TransLink funding.

That kind of contempt for residents should be a good reason to turf this guy out of office come November.

We deserve a mayor who will listen to and act in the best interests of residents, whom he is supposed to represent.

Adam Wittmeier,

Langley City
