While she hasn’t announced her team yet, The Leader has learned of four people running with Barinder Rasode in this fall’s election.
Rasode, who is running for mayor, is expected to announce her team tomorrow afternoon.
They include Maz Artang, Narima Dela Cruz, Merv Bayda and Darlene Bowyer.
Sources also say that her team will also include Cloverdale Chamber president Brian Young and agricultural issue champion Mike Bose.
The Leader talked with both on Tuesday and said they could not comment on a run with Rasode until Wednesday at 4:30.
Artang, a business professional, who is general manager of Brown’s Socialhouse in Sunshine Hills, brings youth to Rasode’s team.
He was one of the people endorsing her at her announcement that she was running for mayor last month.
Badya describes himself on Linked In as the only candidate who has spent his life working in public safety. He worked for the Mounties since 1978, as investigator, research analyst, officer in charge of field training, and from 2001 to 2005, he was working with community policing.
Dela Cruz is a realtor with Magsen Realty and Strata Management Inc. and says she has interests on programs of housing, government policies and transportation.
She describes herself as parent advocate of her children. Her son, Daryl Dela Cruz, 18, is a transportation genius, who has often made headlines pushing for transit change in Surrey.
Bowyer is the former president of the Port Kells Community Association, and has sat on the city’s Heritage Advisory Committee. She has pushed for change in several areas, including the number of drug houses in Surrey and the level of clear cutting for development that has occurred.
Several calls to Rasode on Tuesday went unreturned.
Rasode is running for centre chair against former mayor Doug McCallum, Coun. Linda Hepner, health professional John Edwards and Surrey businessman Vikram Bajwa.
