Election 2014: Serena Oh answers questions

Township of Langley: Oh, Serena - mayor candidate: She answers The Times' questions.

  • Nov. 6, 2014 11:00 a.m.

1 – What is the most important issue facing the Township, and how would you propose to deal with it?

Community development, lack of schools, transportation, the local government’s lack of accountability with their spending while neglecting the needs of the community. We must slow down development of Willoughby and build sustainable development through strategic planning, budgeting and work harmoniously and have a consultation process with community.

2 – Should there be restrictions on development in Willoughby until the situation regarding funding for new schools has been resolved?

Yes.

3 – Do you support a pool and recreation centre complex in Aldergrove, and if so, when should construction begin? If not, why not?

It should begin as soon as possible and move forward.

4- What type of development, if any, should be encouraged in a new community plan for Brookswood and Fernridge?

After costly mistakes we have learned;  we must build beautiful sustainable homes and the local government carries great responsibility. I want to see a change that positively affects our community. We need to protect agricultural land so that we can grow nutricious food from our land, not from other countries. We have majestic trees, clean water, clean air that we breathe. I desire to contribute to the solution that the community currently needs.
