Environment top of mind for Township council candidate Michelle Connerty

Michelle Connerty has announced that she will run for a seat on the Township of Langley Council in October.

Michelle moved to the Langley area from New Westminster in 2011, with her husband and three children. She became involved in local politics in 2014 when the Leave Brookswood Alone movement was started by several local residents.

Connerty speaks passionately in council chambers about the lack of neighbourhood plans, proper phasing of development and the importance of developer-funded infrastructure, prior to development.

Environmental stewardship including tree cutting, wildlife corridors, aquifer protection and providing adequate green spaces are not being adequately addressed, in her opinion.

She is very concerned that many of the issues that Willoughby is experiencing, while less than 50 per cent built out — such as parking, crime, overfilled schools and incomplete roads — will be replicated throughout the Township.

“I intend to listen to the people of the Township of Langley and work extremely hard for the entire community,” said Connerty.

“We only get one chance to get this right — vote for people who will do this properly.”
