Election 2014: Solon Bucholtz runs for Township council

Township of Langley: Bucholtz, Solon - council candidate: realtor cites sustainable development, preserving farmland, heritage as top issues

  • Oct. 8, 2014 7:00 a.m.

Solon Bucholtz has announced his candidacy for councillor of the Township of Langley in the coming Nov. 15 election.

Bucholtz was an original proponent of Mclellan Park who brought the issue before the current council.

“I firmly believe that Langley is the future of the Lower Mainland and can be a leading example of balancing sustainable development while preserving our heritage and farmland,” Bucholtz said.

“I fundamentally believe that we are a great community, which offers opportunities unlike any other in the Lower Mainland,” Bucholtz added.

“With all the good we have to offer, we, like every municipality, need to ensure that we are preserving what makes us strong while working to improve on the issues at hand and changing in a positive direction for the future.” If elected, Solon Bucholtz promises “open conversation and community-led decision-making.”

“Your Voice is Our Future” is not only his campaign platform but a call to action for the community to be inspired, improve for the better and grow for the future, he said.

With the support of his wife Michelle, daughter Jada, and many members of the community, he said he feels his “passion and good business sense will be an added asset of value to the council.”

Bucholtz can be reached directly at 778-995-7467 by email at votesolon@gmail.com, or on facebook at “Solon Bucholtz for township of Langley council 2014”.

A campaign website, Yourvoiceourfuture.ca will be online in the near future.
