Former Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum announces mayoral candidacy

Dec 19 2017, 7:10 pm

At a news conference today, former Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum announced that he will be running for a fourth term as the municipality’s mayor.

“People are feeling unsafe in their neighbourhoods, spending and debt is out of control, transit services are severely lacking, and a ward system that would help cultural and regional representation on City Council has never been seriously considered,” said McCallum.

McCallum served three terms, but lost to current Mayor Dianne Watts in 2005. His website was launched a few hours earlier than anticipated this morning, revealing his four policy points ahead of the election: safer streets, better control of city finances, improved transit services, and the election of city councillors by neighbourhood wards.
