Here are my concerns the candidates for Abbotsford council must promise to work on in order to get my vote:
Vote no on the P3 question.
Ensure left turn traffic lights are installed at South Fraser Way and Ware, Marshall at Ware, and Sumas Way and Lonzo.
Get the left turn light at Sumas Way eastbound to Highway One lengthened to eliminate back-ups.
Make the left turn light at Highway 11 and Harris Road longer so more than two cars get through at a time.
Answer as to what the city is going to do to mitigate the ensuing traffic chaos at Bluejay and Cardinal when the new mall opens up. Already at drive times, vehicles back up unnecessarily.
Clean up the so-called park ‘n rides and truck parking on Lonzo – what eyesores!
Provide wheelchair access to the bus stop on the eastside of Lonzo – right now it’s dangerous.
Pledge to work at getting good transit service to Abbotsford airport terminal. Reminder, close to 500,000 travellers go through yearly, and there’s no bus?
So, if you promise to do your best at these issues, cross your heart and hope to be elected/re-elected, then you get my vote. There’s lots more, but this should keep you all busy enough.
