I am a freelance writer and blogger. I retired as editor of The Langley Times in June, 2015 after 17 years, have worked as a freelance writer, and worked for The Surrey Leader from 1979 to 1993 as a reporter and editor. My work received several awards, and I was runner-up for the editor of the year in a contest sponsored by Local Media Association, a North America-wide newspaper association. My blog Frankly Speaking (http://frankbucholtz.blogspot.ca/) focuses on local, provincial and national topics, including politics, transportation, infrastructure and the South Fraser region. Twitter: @frank_bucholtz; Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/frank.bucholtz.7. I am keenly interested in promoting business and economic activity in Langley.
