Dave S. Hayer, nomination candidate for the Conservative Party of Canada in the new federal riding of Cloverdale-Langley City has purchased a home and has moved into the Clayton Heights neighbourhood of the new riding.
Hayer, who served as MLA in the neighbouring provincial constituency of Surrey-Tynehead for the past 12 years retired from provincial politics in May of this year to seek a federal MP seat. He and his family have lived in Surrey, and always in the riding he served, for more than 30 years. When he decided to seek the nomination in Cloverdale-Langley City, one of the first actions Hayer took was to sell his home in Surrey-Tynehead and purchase one in the new federal constituency.
However, many constituents of the new riding also know him due to his involvement in the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce and other local community organizations. The new federal riding also includes Port Kells, a part of Surrey-Tynehead which Hayer represented in the provincial legislature from 2001 – 2013.
Hayer is also making himself accessible, as he always has by continuing to hold regular monthly “Coffee with Dave” meetings.
These gatherings will be held on the second Saturday of the month at the Pantry Restaurant in Langley’s Willowbrook Mall and on the fourth Saturday of the month at Ricky’s Restaurant in Cloverdale.
“These meetings allow me to connect on a personal basis with constituents to listen to and discuss their concerns, issues and suggestions,” said Hayer. “As an MLA I found this input from citizens to be invaluable, and I will continue to be accessible to constituents should I be elected as a Member of Parliament.
“This direct connection to constituent issues provides me with a tremendous source of information, and allows me to quickly direct concerns to the correct people in government,” noted Hayer.
Both “Coffee with Dave” meetings each month are held from 3:15 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. There is no charge to attend, and Dave will “buy your first cup of coffee”.
“I will continue to work to recognize in our justice system the rights of victims, their families and rights for all law-abiding Canadians; foster strong economic growth, job creation and long-term prosperity for everyone. I will always be accessible to constituents to hear their concerns and suggestions.”
