Election 2018: The Langleys’ candidates so far

Race for office in the Langleys is heating up as summer progresses

Voters won’t go to the polls until late October, but the muncipal election season is already getting into full swing in the Langleys.

So far the list of candidates includes a mix of veterans and newcomers, with a few sitting council members hoping to move into the mayor’s seat, come autumn.

In Langley Township, 12 candidates have so far announced their intention to run for office or seek re-election, while one council member, Charlie Fox, has said he will step away after four terms. Rather than run again as a councillor, Kim Richter will try to unseat Mayor Jack Froese.

In the City, one sitting councillor, Nathan Pachal, has officially announced that he will seek another term, and three newcomers have thrown their hats in the ring.

Meanwhile Coun. Val VandenBroek will each take a run at the mayorship after Ted Schaffer revealed last fall that he will be stepping away from politics due to health concerns. Coun. Paul Albrecht had initially stated his intention to run for mayor but has since announced he will seek relection to his current seat on council instead.

Former City Mayor Peter Fassbender, who left municipal politics to serve one term as Liberal MLA for Surrey-Fleetwood, has announced he will take another run at the mayor’s chair.
