Mayor Linda Hepner elected as new vice-chair of Mayors’ Council
January 16, 2015
Mayor Hepner will be taking on a pivotal role on the Mayors’ Council in leading the Yes campaign in this spring’s Transportation and Transit Plebiscite. Mayor Hepner was voted in as the vice-chair along with Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson who was voted in as the new chair of the Mayors’ Council at today’s meeting.
“Securing a Yes vote in the Transportation and Transit Plebiscite is a top priority of mine,” said Mayor Hepner. “I will be working hard to engage and inform our residents about the much needed benefits of the plan that will keep our economy and people moving.”
The Mayors’ Council Plan calls for several key improvements to Surrey’s transportation and transit system including a new LRT Line, a new Pattullo Bridge, increased bus and HandyDART service and upgrades and widening of major roads.
Main- in ballots will arrive in mid-March and residents will have until May 29th to vote.
