Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce also hosts “A Conversation with our Federal Candidates,” an interview hosted by chamber president Milt Kruger. All five local candidates will be in attendance this April 19 dinner meeting.

“Being able to host all five of our federal candidates at the April dinner meeting gives our members an opportunity to hear firsthand their positions on many business related issues,” said Milt Kruger. “The evening will be very informative and very well attended. I would advise our members and guests to book their tickets early.”
