Two new faces on Langley City council

Ted Schaffer remains in the mayor’s chair in Langley City, and all the incumbent councillors who were seeking re-election are staying on.

Two council seats up for grabs for challengers were taken by Val van den Broek and Paul Albrecht.

Schaffer, who inherited the council’s leadership by decision of fellow council members after Mayor Peter Fassbender stepped aside to join Christy Clark’s provincial cabinet as Minister of Education, received 2,781 votes, to walk past challengers Randy Caine (767) and Ray Lewis (558).(

(Actual vote tallies are unofficial at this time.)

Incumbent Dave Hall topped the councillors’ polls, with 2,172 votes.

He was followed by van den Broek’s 1,864.

Next up were incumbents Rudy Storteboom (1,856) and Gayle Martin (1,851), and then newcomer Paul Albrecht (1,738).

The last seat goes to Jack Arnold with 1,599 votes.

Out of the running were Nathan Pachal (1,528), Sharon Newbery (1,493), Miriam Marshall (1, 463), Carla Robin (1,403), Christine MacIntosh (1,164), and Ron Abgrall (590).
