Election 2018: The candidates so far

With four months to go until election day, candidates have begun to declare their intentions

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, nine 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 councillor, Nathan Pachal, has officially announced that he will seek another term, while Coun. Paul Albrecht and 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.
