Most sports groups don’t get involved in politics unless of course they need to improve on existing facilities or even acquire the most basic park space to accommodate their sport. In Aldergrove this has been the case for our two soccer clubs, baseball groups, bike enthusiasts and community gardeners. Being a relatively stable community in terms of development we don’t have to look far westward to see the benefits of rapidly growing areas of the township manifesting their growth into new parks and facilities.
This open letter is not to suggest solutions (though it wouldn’t hurt to ask the various candidates their thoughts on improvements in Aldergrove) but rather point out that in our battles to improve our community parks in Aldergrove we have had the extraordinary help of one councillor in particular. He has spent countless hours on our behalf and you can see some of the results today at the Aldergrove Athletic Park and more are coming soon all due to his excellent consensus building within the sports community and behind the scenes work at Township Hall. This is why we endorse Charlie Fox for councillor in this election.
There are many candidates, many issues, but we feel that if you vote for just one reason, that being for all the effort Charlie Fox has given us, that would be more than amply justified. Even if you vote for Charlie strictly on this one issue your vote will be deservedly directed towards a local champion.
Art Bandenieks, Bill Ede, Heath MacKenzie, Lyall Sharman and Russ Simpson, Aldergrove
