What’s your resolution? Send us yours and we’ll add it to our list

“Resolve 135A issues, advance a road repair strategy and congestion plan, stop meetings long enough to eat something healthy and walk more. Take in as many of my grandsons’ lacrosse games as possible.” – Mayor Linda Hepner

“Be a better boss, dad and husband. And hitter.” – Now-Leader editor Beau Simpson (also catcher for the Surrey Angels hardball team)

“Less Guinness, more genius.” – Surrey-based musician Pat Chessell

“I’m just beginning to recover from a long bout with the flu, exacerbated by overwork and this tends to happen every year, so I guess my new year’s resolution is to try to work less, play more – especially with my beloved family!” – Ellie King, managing artistic director of Royal Canadian Theatre Company

“I’m going to try to talk less and listen more.” – Heidi Greco, award-winning Surrey poet

“Play more music, eat less bad food late at night, talk with friends more in person, get some damn exercise.” – Tom Zillich, Now-Leader entertainment editor

“‘Fear less, love more,’ which is a kind of personal motto adopted when I started ‘going deep’ into my term as Surrey’s first ever poet laureate. Also, ‘saying yes,’ as Surrey is a ‘yes’ city.” – Renee Saklikar, Surrey’s Poet Laureate

“I have decided to get out and walk more so I am getting a puppy in February to make sure I stay active.” – Mike MacSorley, general manager of Cloverdale Rodeo and Exhibition Association
