Ted Schaffer has been in local politics for over 22 years and is serving his first term as Mayor of Langley City.  Projects underway currently include work on 200th Street for upgrade of a sewer line and  the construction of the new Timms recreation centre that will be a completely new building that includes a track running around the inside perimeter of the building so people can walk indoors during inclement weather.  Linwood Park has a new dog off leash area and 26 community garden plots.
Homeless people are an issue in Langley City as in most other areas.  A Homeless Task Force has been looking into the problem and has just merged with the Crime Prevention Task Force under the new heading of the Public Safety Task Force.
Upcoming projects include a clock to be erected a 204 Street and Fraser Highway in memory of Reg Easingwood, to be funded by Rotary.
