Scott Goodmanson Biography – Scott Goodmanson Wiki
Scott Goodmanson is the mayor-elect of the City of Langford, B.C. and owner of Good Ponds Landscape and Garden, a landscaping business he started in 2006. Rowing has been part of his life for 30 years, including competing, coaching and officiating, and he competed as part of Team Canada at the 1994 Commonwealth Regatta.
Goodmanson’s family arrived more than 90 years ago on the Langford Lake property where his parents still live today. Goldstream Avenue was just a wagon trail then. Scott grew up surrounded by the woods on the north shore of the lake.
As a child, Scott attended Ruth King, Spencer and Belmont schools. He was a cub, scout and air cadet in the Western Communities.
Scott developed a passion for rowing at Belmont Secondary, which led him to numerous provincial and national championships, international competitions and rowing for Team Canada in the 1994 Commonwealth Regatta. He has been involved in rowing as a competitor, coach and officiator for 30 years.
In that time, Scott went into landscaping to support his training and post-secondary studies. He has owned and operated Good Ponds Landscape and Garden since 2006.
Scott Goodmanson Langford Mayor
Goodmanson was elected the mayor of the City of Langford, B.C., upsetting seven-term mayor Stew Young, in the municipal election held on October 15, 2022. Goodmanson won with 54.1 per cent of the vote (4,483 votes) over Young’s 45.9 per cent (3,796 votes). Young was the first mayor ever elected in the city, which was incorporated in 1992, and has served as mayor ever since.
“Like many, I have watched with grave concern how the mayor and council have run the city in recent years,” Goodmanson said in a statement announcing his bid for mayor on Sept. 16, 2022. ” I’ve heard residents’ stories of calling city hall for help and never getting an answer, of speaking up in public hearings and being ignored or shouted down. Someone needs to step up to offer a different choice, a different vision. I want to lead a new way forward for Langford – together with my community.”
“Voters should be heard before, during and after the election. I intend to create a culture where residents’ voices are heard, understood and respected – not dismissed or run over. To really understand what the public wants, we have to listen to people.”
Goodmanson will preside over a six-seat council that will include five newcomers – Colby Harder, Mary Wagner, Keith Yacucha, Kimberley Guiry and Mark Morley – as well as returning councillor Lillian Szpak.
