RELEASE

TOWNSHIP OF LANGLEY, BC — August 17th, 2022 — Joel Neufeld will be running with Holly Dickinson and the Contract with Langley team for School Trustee in the upcoming October 15th, 2022, local elections.

Joel Neufeld will be running with the Contract with Langley team for School Trustee along with Holly Dickinson in the upcoming October 15th, 2022, local elections.

“My daughter started school last year, and we can already see the many challenges our teachers face with lack of reserves, new schools being built that are already at capacity, some even with no outdoor areas for kids to play and explore. We are failing at basic infrastructure like sidewalks for kids to get to school safely. We have to do better. Our community is growing and developers are reaping the rewards while our kids and teachers are left desperately trying to keep up. It’s just not good enough," Joel said.

“Joel and I first met in the School Trustee by-election when we ran against each other. It was clear from our campaigns that we shared many of the same educational philosophies. It has been great to get to know him," Holly Dicksinson said.

She added, "Joel is one of the most hardworking and civic minded individuals that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Right from our first meeting, it was apparent that Joel has a fantastic ability to think critically and is not afraid to ask “why” questions, something we need."

"Joel is one of the most community minded people I’ve ever met. He volunteers his time to help wherever he can. We’ve had long discussions about the needs for our kids and schools and he has dug deep to uncover where we are looking for real solutions to improve,” Carlos Nakamura, an Education Assistant for the Langley School District.

Neufeld looks forwards to campaign ahead and meeting with members in the community in the weeks ahead. The Contract With Langley full Plan for Schools will be released in September.

Joel is one of the most community minded people I’ve ever met. We’ve had long discussions about the real need for a plan for schools. He has real ideas for where we can improve.
