Carolyn Latzen

Candidate for Councillor

I am a proud member of the White Rock South Surrey community and have lived here for over 50 years. I graduated from Earl Marriott and have a Bachelor of Commerce Degree from UBC. I’ve spent 30+ successful years as a retail executive, running store operations for major retail chains including Peoples Jewellers and Old Navy.

My volunteer experience includes chairing the Marine Drive Task Force, coordinating the inaugural White Rock Festival of Lights, and membership on the Economic Development Advisory Committee.

I worked part time for the City of White Rock as the Economic Development Officer. My accomplishments include the creation of a draft Economic Development Strategic Plan, the production of a Business Resource Guide, the addition of a Business Directory to the City website and the planning and execution of the 2022 Affordable Housing Partnership Seminar. I believe my experience and passion for the community make me an excellent choice to serve you.

My priorities are to make White Rock a Well-Run City that supports both residents and business and provides opportunities for reducing taxes. I want to make White Rock a more Liveable City, greener and more vibrant, with a revitalized Waterfront and enjoyable public spaces. Law enforcement needs tools to make White Rock a Safer City and I will support increasing the Public Safety Budget to help them do this. I will assess each development proposal on its own merits and support those that will help create a more Affordable City, and benefit the community.
