Election 2014: Petrina Arnason seeks seat on Langley Township council

Township of Langley: Arnason, Petrina - council candidate: Candidate promises to be a dedicated full-time councillor.

  • Oct. 16, 2014 5:00 p.m.

Petrina Arnason is seeking election to Langley Township council.

“I have a keen interest in municipal politics and have been actively involved in many community groups and projects. It is my honour and privilege to run as a community representative and to offer myself as someone willing to work solely on your behalf,” she says.

She has posted her platform on her website, and it will include a “Q&A” forum. Her Facebook page will also contain updates and information about opportunities to meet with her to discuss issues and concerns.

“My platform is based on my extensive community involvement and grassroots activities within the Township. I am passionate about working for positive change and am most proud of my work with WOLF (Watchers of Langley Forests) and with the Triple A Senior Housing group. I am also involved with a wide range of other interests, from heritage to fill sites.

“I feel strongly that the complex and multi-faceted problems currently facing the Township require a full-time focus and a representative who is a dedicated full-time councillor. Decision making around rapid urbanization, creating new infrastructure, densification and costly engineering projects requires leaders who have the education and understanding to make sound decisions which balance the community interest with economic growth and sustainable development.

Arnason has law and masters in environmental studies degrees, which she says will be a definite asset in helping to create progressive policies that will serve the Township for the next four years.

She is the daughter of longtime councillor Muriel Arnason, the first woman ever elected to Langley Township council.

“I welcome questions and I am happy to give real answers,” she says.

Her website is www.petrinaarnason.com, her email address is petrina@petrinaarnason.com, Facebook page www.facebook/pages/PetrinaArnason2014 and Twitter handle is @PetrinaArnason.
