Letter: Choosing one out of five

The Conservative nomination race in the federal Cloverdale-Langley City riding is new, and has to date five candidates.

To the editor;

I am a Surrey resident of 52 years. I have lived in Surrey all my life. In fact, I live one mile today from where I grew up.

The Conservative nomination race in the federal Cloverdale-Langley City Riding is new, and has to date five candidates.

Of the five, only one lives in the riding and has for more than 25 years. The others do not.

I urge each and every concerned constituent to do their homework. Find out everything they can about the candidates. Who are they? What do they stand for? Most important, what is their involvement in our community? Do they really have this riding at heart?

When I go to the polls, it’s going to be for someone who has lived here.

I am going to throw my support behind Mike Garisto. He has lived here some 25 years and continues to be a voice for my community.

Jean Van Zanten
