Former candidate returns for Langley Township election

Former candidate returns for Langley Township election

This will be the second time Kerri Ross has run for local office.

Willoughby’s Kerri Ross is running for her second try at a Langley Township council seat this fall.

Ross, a four-year member of the District Parents Advisory Council (DPAC) ran in 2014 as half of the two-person Live Langley slate with Clint Lee.

This year, she said the need for ongoing investment in youth services and safety infrastructure are two of her main issues.

“As the community grows these are things we cannot wait for,” Ross said in an announcement. “These are needs we had yesterday and will continue to have tomorrow.”

Education and affordable housing are key concerns that come up repeatedly in the Township, Ross said.

When Ross last ran, it was aspart of slate driven by opposition to a number of decisions made in the run-up to the 2014 election.

Live Langley took issue with development in Willoughby, the Coulter Berry building controversy in Fort Langley, and approvals for projects near Trinity Western University.

Ross and Lee were in the top-eight vote getters in Willoughby and Brookswood during the 2014 election, but didn’t get much traction outside of those neighbourhoods.
