Hepner delivers State of City Address

GUILDFORD – Mayor Linda Hepner was set to deliver her first annual State of the City Address on Wednesday, after the Now’s deadline.


"I’m really going to paint a picture of the Surrey of the future – where we need to go from here," she told the Now on Tuesday as she prepared for her 30-minute speech.


"And I’ll be talking about some of the initiatives that we’ll be implementing over the next few months to get us there."


She said she’ll be "introducing two or three new things."


The presentation was also set to include a discussion on Surrey’s economic outlook and plans for the coming year.


The event was scheduled for noon on May 20 at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel.
