UPDATED: The unofficial election results for Fraser Lake

A new mayor and village council has been elected

UPDATED:

According to unofficial election results, Sarrah Storey has been elected as the new Mayor of the Village of Fraser Lake with 56.9 per cent of the vote. She ran against incumbent Dwayne Lindstrom, who served as the mayor for the past 10 years.

“I feel absolutely humbled,” says Storey. She adds: “It’s really unique, because not only am I the first female Mayor of Fraser Lake … but there’s also going to be three women on council [including the mayor] which is history in the making. We’ve never had three women on council before.”

Storey spent election night home with her family, friends, a fellow candidate and any community members who opted to drop by. She says she is excited to get to work.

“I tucked my kids into bed tonight and I said: ‘I’m very excited, mommy gets to make Fraser Lake an even better place to live,’” says Storey.

So what’s next? Storey says it’s time to sit down with the new council and go over the council appointments, the budget, teach the new councillors about the strategic plan and address what they would like to do as a council.

Then, she says, it’s time to “get out into the community and get to work.”

One incumbent and three new candidates were also elected to village council. They are: Craig Lepoidevin, the incumbent councillor, with 284 votes, Joe Jenkinson with 267 votes, Kim Watt-Senner with 233 votes, and Audrey Fennema with 216 votes.
