Teri James to run again for Langley City Council

‘I feel I have a lot to contribute’

After taking last term off to focus on her family, Teri James is once again throwing her hat in the ring for a position on Langley City Council.

James has been vested in Langley City for almost 20 years, both as the Executive Director for the Downtown Langley Business Association for the past 18 years, and as a City Councillor, serving three terms from 2005 to 2011.

“My motivation for running again is because I feel I have a lot to contribute,” she explained.

“After sitting out a term and watching the unprecedented growth in this community, I realize that this is my passion and I want very much to be a part of the decision making going forward.”

“Social issues continue to be an increasing concern for me. Homelessness, now a global situation, crime, future transportation needs and pressure on our fragile infrastructure continue to be priorities for me,” James stated.

“Most importantly, however, is the vision for the future of this amazing community, to ensure the quality of life for its citizens for generations to come.”

Retired Langley Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Lynn Whitehouse had this to say: “As a long-time City resident and voter, I am pleased to give my unreserved support to Teri James as Councillor in Langley City. In her previous terms she contributed to advancing our City with sound decisions following extensive research and communication with residents and business people alike.

“I have also had the pleasure of working with Teri on numerous Committees and Task Forces, where she continually searches for solutions to challenges, as opposed to bandaids. Her knowledge of critical elements such as economic development, need for attracting investment to our commercial core, balanced budgets, transportation and infrastructure upgrades is extensive and will serve us all well at the council table. Teri will serve the citizens of the City of Langley with critical thinking in a business-like manner to ensure we continue to move forward.”

“I have always been passionate about this community,” said James. “What I will bring to the table is an ear, a voice, I am a team player, I’m trustworthy and very level headed. I think I would be a valuable asset as a member of Langley City Council.”
