First elected in 1999, Bob Long is serving his 6th consecutive term as a councillor in the Township of Langley, located in the heart of the Fraser Valley.
Born on Robbie Burns Day in England in 1957, Bob and his family came to British Columbia in 1968. Bob's experiences are rather vast as an entrepreneur. At just 22 years old, he founded a local community weekly newspaper, then in 1986 he started a career in the printing industry and at the same time his interest in live music took him on North American tours as a sound engineer. His most recent ventures have included owning and operating restaurants with his wife Karen.
Bob has served over 10 years on the national board of the FCM, and has chaired various FCM standing committees and the BC caucus. Long has held executive positions on regional and provincial organizations including UBCM and LMLGA and currently represents FCM on the National Zero Waste Council.
"FCM has come such a very long way since I attended my first meetings in 2000, it is considered an essential partner with the federal government in building a better Canada ~ a role that only local government can fulfil as the closest to the citizens we all serve".
"Working TOGETHER ...we all WIN"
