Two Live Langley candidates are running for Township of Langley council seats.

Clint Lee and Kerri Ross are the president and vice-president of Live Langley.

The group describes itself as a “grassroots party founded on the basic principles of openness, accountability, and sustainability.”

While running on independent platforms, Lee and Ross said they share a mutual desire to create a truly livable and successful community for each and every citizen.

“It is time for a change on Township council,” said Lee.

“It is time to have councillors who are ready to consider all citizens of Langley. We need councillors who proactively approach sustainable development based on a comprehensive, well researched, and premeditated strategy of what is best for all of Langley.”

“This election is the tipping point for how the transformation of the Township of Langley evolves,” said Ross.

“I am ready to be the voice of the average citizen and protect our community from decisions based on whims or dollar signs.

“We are committed to representing the citizens Township of Langley with integrity, transparency, and accountability.”

Lee has lived in Willoughby for the past 11 years with his wife Elizabeth, a nurse, and his son Pierce, age 11.

Lee has coached for the Langley Minor Hockey Association for the past six years, and recognizes the need for youth services and activities in the community.

He is managing partner at Nexus Intellectual Property Law.

Kerri Ross, her husband Jason, and sons Nathan (age 7) and Noah (age 5) have lived in Willoughby for seven years.

Ross has a planning and resource management background.
