Langley Township candidates for mayor, council, and school board seats wooed voters at an event Wednesday afternoon.
The second meet and greet event organized by the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce drew several dozen people, although early on the number of candidates was as large as the crowd there to speak to them.
Growth was a big topic for the candidates.
“I think they want managed growth,” said council candidate Steve Ferguson, who said he was also hearing a lot about transportation issues and gridlock on major roads.
Mayoral candidate Anna Remenick said she had heard from voters concerned about a possible truck route on 216th Street, where a new overpass is under construction.
“The rate of development, that’s a really big piece,” Remenick said.
Council candidate Gary Hee said he’d been asked about speeding up approvals for multi-family housing projects in the Township.
