Wayne Crossen is seeking a seat on Langley Township council.

Wayne Crossen is running for councillor in Langley Township.

The longtime Brookswood resident wants to see more visionary thinking in the Township, and he also wants to see more attention paid to issues in Brookswood, Fernridge and South Langley in general.

Crossen was manager of the Fort Langley National Historic Park, has owned a graphics business and is now semi-retired. His wife is a high school counsellor and they have two grown children.

He is past president of the Rotary Club of Langley Central, has served on the Ishtar and YM/YWCA boards and is past president of Rotary World Help Network, an organization represnting 36 Rotary Clubs that collect supplies to ship to needy nations.

Crossen is concerned about “the lack of civility” on the current council, and believes this has led to “a lack of vision as to where we are going.”

“I’m concerned about how Langley develops,” he said. “We have concentrated too much on density and not enough on livability.”

He said the Brookswood area has been largely ignored by the Township for years, and what attention is being paid to it is “developer-driven.”

“Brookswood should be developed as a livable community, so people can walk and bike to services.”

He said the widespread concerns over sale of a school site in the Routley neighbourhood of Willoughby highlight the lack of vision and concern for livability within Langley.

“We need a vision. That’s what inspired me to run for council,” he said.

Crossen is running as an independent.

‘We need independent people who can think outside the box. We have to turn council around.”

He can be reached by phone at 604-530-7764 or by e-mail at waynecrossen@gmail.com. His website is http://waynecrossen.ca.
