Fraser Lake: Reyden, Don – councillor candidate

My name is Don Reyden and I am seeking 4th term re-election as councillor for the Village of Fraser Lake. I am a married 45+ year resident of Fraser Lake and have 2 children and 3 grandchildren. My employer for the last 25 years has been Endako Mines with the last 20 my position that of Maintenance Planner focusing on short and long term budgeting and planning. These skills fit well with what is required as a councillor when making decisions to best meet the financial needs of our community while balancing tax payers, young and old, local business and our two main tax supporting industries of Thompson Creek Mining and West Fraser Sawmills who support and employ so many of our residents. Once retired, Fraser Lake will remain my home where my wife and I will spend more time in our family Artisan Gallery. I would like to continue to be a part of the decision making process for community living enhancement and growth and will continue to serve with my common sense and level headed approach to decision making, budgeting and planning which has served the community well over the last 3 terms. The 3 terms I have had the privilege of being one of the major forces to carry through the Water Treatment Plant, Recreational Center and Skating Rink arena hard surface, along with numerous renovations inside and out. Another significant project that I am very proud to have been a driving force in carrying this through is our state of the art Skate Board Park complete with a graffiti wall where kids can design to their hearts content. I was an early supporter of creating a position of recreational director that not only designs programs for our youth but also our seniors. When re- elected one of the areas of focus will be a complete street paving program which would also include walkways. I look forward to your support on November 15th.
