Since first being elected in 2014, I have dedicated 100% of my time to our community, working full time as a Township Councillor. During that time I have advocated for, and achieved, many important initiatives including delivering more libraries, advancing the interests of seniors, and championing a Township Climate Emergency Declaration.
I love our community. From the abundant farmlands to the spectacular parklands to family neighbourhoods and urban centres, Langley Township is a special place that I’m proud to have made my home for over 20 years. My husband and I have lived in Walnut Grove, North Langley, Aldergrove and now make our home in Murrayville. I hold a Master’s in Environmental Studies and a Law Degree and have worked in a family business.
During my time on Council, I have heard from you that the priorities for the Township must focus on several areas vital to the long-term viability of our community.
If re- elected I will continue to champion the issues and goals that matter most to you: transparency and accountability at city hall; climate mitigation and the environment; improving and protecting tree canopy and green space; affordable housing; social infrastructure for seniors; water protection; and food security.
