Murray Langdon, BGCA Board of Directors

I am proud to serve as a director on the board of the Burnside Gorge Community Association. This is an active, engaged group of people that is standing up for the community. I am truly amazed and impressed by the knowledge, passion and dedication shown by all our board members in advocating for a better, stronger and safer community. I feel fortunate to be able to be a part of it.

To me, investing in our communities and neighbourhoods is among the best things we can do. It is like spending time with family; the benefits are immeasurable and the rewards amazing. I spent nearly two decades in media, in radio, television and print. Currently, I am doing my MBA at Royal Roads University. Along with serving on the BGCA board, I am president of the board at the Victoria Brain Injury Society.

I and my family have lived in the area since 2007. We are proud owners of a 100-plus year old house that we renovated and enjoy being immersed in the neighbourhood. This is a family area, where we feel right at home. My wife Lindsay, along with our son Parker and daughter Neko, all appreciate the benefits of the community amenities while being so close to town. It’s a walkable, welcoming part of this city which we delight in being a part of.

As a board member I am very active in our Campus Committee, which is looking at the treasure we have in Burnside Elementary and trying to find creative ways to plan for the future. It will be a long process, but our committee’s goal is to ensure we have a sustainable plan for the future so we can continue to offer the wonderful environment at the school.

I look forward to seeing you out in the community; if we come across each other please stop and say hi.
