Vecchiato’s Voice Is Coming To Langley Free Press

We are pleased to announce that Cathleen Vecchiato has agreed to become our 3rd and most recent contributing columnist with Langley Free Press. She is a very well recognized champion of the environment and community activist in Langley as well as in other adjoining communities. She has been a frequent fixture at Council meetings advocating for the environment and wildlife. She is always well researched, passionate and articulate on conservation matters. She has also contributed extensively to the print media over the years about balancing and conserving the natural beauty of our communities.

Cathleen Vecchiato has been an outspoken environmentalist for the past 5-1/2 years. Raised in Johannesburg, Sao Paulo, Brazil, and San Francisco, she earned her Bachelor's in English at SF State University. After moving to Langley in 1997, she has followed municipal issues closely, made delegations to council, and formed Langley Conservation Network. Vecchiato became a Canadian citizen on December 3, 2003, primarily so that she could vote in Canada.

We look forward to Cathleen sharing political & conservation information and discussion about the community with the community here in Langley Free Press. Tomorrow will be Langley Free Press's 1st month anniversary and we have come a long way. Three columnists and thousands of viewers in just 30 days and growing exponentially! How fitting for us to celebrate with Cathleen's Voice joining ours! She will be submitting in the upcoming week. Welcome Cathleen.
Editor Langley Free Press
