Mayor Nathan Pachal

Whether by collaborating with other members of Council, with various community groups, and with regional and city committees, Nathan has worked hard to bring forward awareness around intersecting components of affordable, sustainable, healthy, happy, and accessible community design.

He has appeared in print, radio, and television, talking about affordable housing and transportation in our region. He has helped bring world-renowned urban design speakers to the community.

As a strong supporter of agricultural and green spaces, he authored a report on the Agricultural Land Reserve entitled “Decade of Exclusions? A Snapshot of the Agricultural Land Reserve from 2000-2009 in the South of Fraser.”

He believes we need a diverse transportation system that allows people to take transit, cycle, walk, or drive throughout the entire region. He co-authored a report “Leap Ahead: A transit plan for Metro Vancouver” to bring awareness to the importance of accessible transit networks.

He worked with other members of Council to put forward policies to ensure we protect and renew our seniors' affordable housing. He will continue working to ensure Langley City is a place that working folks can call home.

In 2010, he completed the SFU & City of Surrey Transportation Lecture Program and presented on “Complete Streets.”

Nathan was first elected to Council in a 2016 by-election and elected Mayor in 2022.

Councillor Teri James

Teri, her husband Bob, and their four children moved to Langley City from Victoria in 2001 and immediately fell in love with the community. She soon became the Executive Director of the Downtown Langley Business Association (DLBA) and in 2005 was elected to Langley City Council.

Teri has been working for the DLBA since October 2001 and has sat on numerous panels, committees, and advisory boards in this role. Working in the downtown core for over two decades and now serving her fifth term on City Council has provided her with much insight regarding the needs and challenges facing Langley City.

In September 2017, the DLBA was awarded Langley City’s tourism contract, Discover Langley City, and she now oversees both the Downtown Langley Business Association and Discover Langley City as Executive Director.

Teri will continue to respect diversity, inclusivity, the ongoing truth and reconciliation journey, and the partnerships that exist between Langley City and the many other community groups they work with. She believes that working together is the key to the City moving forward and she feels certain that is the direction this council will take.

Teri brings to the table her passion for the community and it is of vital importance to her that we all keep this community vibrant and maintain the quality of life for everyone for years to come.

Councillor Mike Solyom

Mike and his wife Julia live in the Uplands neighborhood of Langley City with their two young children, Jake and Alexis. Mike first moved to Langley in 2000 as a teenager, having grown up in the Montreal area of Quebec. While studying for his undergraduate degree in Economics and Math he lived in Vancouver, and while studying for his Master’s in Economics, he lived in Toronto. His time in these cities has given Mike an appreciation for what is possible for a City like Langley.

This is Mike’s first term on Council, having been elected in the fall of 2022. He is a member of the Douglas College Commerce and Business Administration Faculty, where he teaches Economics and Business Statistics. He has been teaching Economics for over a decade, and the topic that gets by far the most engagement with his students is housing affordability. A recent survey showed that 71% of 18- to 34-year-olds were considering leaving Metro Vancouver due to the housing crisis, and Mike’s goal while on Council is to do what he can to bring that number down. He wants to ensure his own children will have a safe and prosperous future in Langley City.

Outside of work, Mike enjoys travelling – he has driven across North America with friends, and across parts of Africa with Julia. With his kids he enjoys playing games, watching movies, and building Lego.
