TOWNSHIP COUNCIL: Fox seeking fourth term

Charlie Fox has served three terms as a Langley Township councillor, and he doesn’t want it to end there.

He’ll be running for a fourth term, this time under the new rules that extend terms to four years each.

Announcing his candidacy, he said he is “proud of my contribution to the Township of Langley and the leadership provided,” and added, “There is still work to be done.”

“This past term I have worked with my council colleagues to rebuild confidence in our community as a place to live and do business,” he said.

“We have seen unprecedented growth in the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors, making Langley Township a very healthy and enjoyable place to live, work, and play.”

He cited major infrastructure partnerships and projects in transportation, like the Carvolth Park and Ride, and overpasses at Langley Bypass and Mufford Crescent, 232nd Street, and 248th Street.

He said that, despite escalating costs, the Township had among the lowest rates in Metro Vancouver over the past year, adding, “I pride myself in the diligence and responsibility shown in the stewardship of your tax monies.”

He said public safety has been and will continue to be a focus for him. “Our policing model in the Township is sound,” he said. “Our fire and emergency response times are excellent and make for a safe community, one that is more liveable for our families.”

He plans to continue to address growth in the Township’s recreational facilities and parks, and listed his continued commitment to building a recreation complex for Aldergrove, a need to look at “options and partnerships to see if we cannot get a fine arts performance theatre,” and a focus on parks and green space development in the Willoughby Slope area.

“The role of a Township councillor is to look after the best interests of the Township as a whole,” he said, “not those of narrow-focused interest groups.”

He has an election website at www.reelectcharliefox.ca.
