    Dear Commission,

    I haven’t seen a lot of discussion coming from the boundaries process on the part of Surrey where I live and work- which is Newton.

    I want the Commission, and whoever else makes the decision, to know that I support the current boundaries for Newton. I think they represent my community well and it wouldn’t bother me if it is on the higher side of this 25% latitude that Commissioners have to play with as long as it kept the Newton community as a unit. When I looked through your first proposal that was issued, I noticed that Newton was the smallest riding in Surrey in terms of geography for both the current make-up and this proposed alignment.

    I just put that out there because I think the residents would be okay with the current boundaries and considering we’re the smallest in geography then it stands to reason that our MLA can represent a higher number of people since it is a small area to travel.

    Best,
