Candidate provided bio: Sunny moved to the Lower Mainland in 2001, and has since started his family and business here. Since arriving he has felt a deep sense of pride for where he lives and firmly believes being an active member of the community is a responsibility, not a choice. As a father, a business owner, and community advocate, he has the experience and the ideas to make Langley’s future brighter by making sure our infrastructure keeps up with our growing population so that there is no trade-off between a growing Langley and quality of life, work to support small businesses and keep taxes low so that there are more good-paying jobs, and expand roads and transit to make sure people can get to where they need to be. He looks forward to working with residents on these issues so that we’re an even more livable, healthy, and growing community.
