Ken Langille has entered the race to be mayor of New Glasgow.
“At the urging of many supporters, I have made the decision to enter the contest,” he says.
“I enter this race knowing I am fully capable of making a positive difference in the lives of the citizens of our municipality. I believe my previous 15 years on council coupled with my business experience provide me with the tools needed to succeed as mayor.”
Langille says he would adopt a business approach to the day-to-day operation of the town with a social conscience to ensure that “residents are receiving a quality product for their tax money.”
Efficiency and effectiveness are Langille’s catch words. “My vision would see this achieved through an administrative amalgamation of municipalities within Pictou County.
“We need to have a stronger, unified approach with the provincial and federal government. Such a voice grows more robust when done collectively. We would have the opportunity to be a stronger bargaining agent when buying in bulk. We become more attractive to potential businesses which in turn helps create more prospects for employment and eventually help to keep our educated youth in Pictou County.”
Langille concludes, “I believe I bring the needed leadership to champion this process.”
