Those running are:

• Kiernan Hillan, a local volunteer and former roads manager for Richmond

• Mel Kositsky, a former longtime Langley Township councillor

• Rae Anne Maj, a City board of variance committee member

• Sharon Newbery, a business owner and local volunteer

• Serena Oh, who ran for mayor of Langley Township in 2014

• Nathan Pachal, a longtime advocate for transit and urban planning

• George Roman, an investment advisory and member of multiple Langley City committees.

The byelection will be held on Feb. 27, with advance voting on Feb. 16-18 and Feb. 24, as well as special voting on Feb. 25 at the Lion’s Evergreen Hall and the Langley Seniors Resource Centre.
