SURREY – Coun. Barinder Rasode, who’s expected to take a run at the mayor’s chair in Surrey this fall, is organizing a telephone town hall on transportation on Wednesday, Sept. 3. Earlier this year, an online survey found Surrey residents see transportation as the second-largest issue facing their city.
In an Insights West poll released March 7, it was found that 51 per cent of residents see crime as the top issue facing their city, followed by transportation at 18 per cent. Poverty and education came next, tied at six per cent.
