LANGLEY TOWNSHIP’S ANNA REMENIK JOINS MAYORAL RACE

LANGLEY, British Columbia, September 17, 2018 – Murrayville resident and Langley School District employee Anna Remenik today announced her candidacy for the mayor’s seat in Langley Township’s upcoming municipal election, set for October 20, 2018. 


Remenik, a resident of Langley for several years in the 1990s and again since 2007, has observed the transformation of Langley over the past 30 years, and has for years advocated for careful development based on meaningful consultation.


“We need a vision that puts first and foremost the quality of life for the residents who are already here,” says Remenik, “as well as ongoing success and prosperity for farmers and businesses within the Township. We need to preserve and value the ALR, and our sensitive natural resources. In addition, we now have considerable strain on community resources, hospital space, schools, and infrastructure. It’s clear we need a more balanced approach.”


Remenik has a background in business administration and accounting. As a former self-employed business owner currently working as a Special  Education Assistant, and with training in crisis prevention and behaviour de-escalation, Remenik will bring a unique and valuable set of skills to the mayor’s role.
