The Board of Directors of the BC Construction Roundtable is pleased to announce that Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum will give the keynote address at the 2019 Annual General Meeting
Doug McCallum was elected to his fourth term as Mayor of Surrey on October 20, 2018. Throughout the course of three previous mayoral terms from 1996 to 2005, Mayor McCallum provided leadership to the region through his service on the GVRD TransLink Committee. He succeeded in keeping property taxes low for Surrey residents and left the city in a solid financial position with a $300 million dollar surplus and no debt.
One of his first decisions with Council in 2018 was to cancel the Surrey Newton Guildford LRT project and to begin work on extending the existing SkyTrain network in Surrey from King George Station to Langley City. Council also unanimously approved a motion to create a Surrey Police Department and serve notice to the federal and provincial governments that the City of Surrey would terminate its contract with the RCMP municipal police service. A third key priority is to pause rapid expansion while creating smart development guidelines to ensure infrastructure keeps up with growth. Mayor McCallum’s substantive history of service to the City speaks to his determination and drive to achieve meaningful results for Surrey residents.
