Misty Van Popta to Run for Township Council



TOWNSHIP OF LANGLEY, BC — August 18th, 2022 — Misty Van Popta will be running for Township of Langley Council with Councillor and Mayoral candidate Eric Woodward and the Contract with Langley team in the upcoming October 15th, 2022, local municipal election.

Misty is a life long Langley resident construction manager with years of construction management experience that will be invaluable on Council. She fist ran for Council in 2011. She is running to focus on building permit and development processes, to get more for residents from development, and support needed investments to solve the chronic deficit in roads and other infrastructure.

"In 2011, the 208th Street corridor was so bad then that it was a big part of my campaign platform. Here we are 11 years later with no end in sight to the ongoing absurdity of our roads. It's ridiculous. We have to fix it, along with so many other important isuses. We have to catch-up with development, a big reason I decided to join the Contract With Langley team," Misty said.

"It's long overdue for some new voices part of a team that will finally be able to solve so many important issues with new ideas, a clear plan, and the commitment to it done," she added.

"Misty is a passionate and driven person who I know will get things done. I can’t wait to have someone with new ideas and some youthful energy in place to finally fix some of our unsafe roads and sidewalks,” said Tracy Philipchalk, a Fort Langley resident.

"As a retired instructor of engineering at BCIT, I now promote environmentally conscious and sustainable building practices. After many conversation with Misty over the past few years, I know that she has the values, attitude, and ethics we need on Council to help improve our liveability within Langley," said Dan Sundvick.

Van Popta also added that she is looking forward to the campaign in the weeks ahead, to engage with residents and outline her vision for Langley. The Contract With Langley's full Plan for Progress will be released in late September.

I want to support real progress, be part of the solution, truly working together within a great team with a vision for Langley.

It's great to add Misty's construction experience to the team. She will be a great, common sense addition to Council to help with almost every aspect of our plan.
