Fraser Lake by-election candidate: Alan Laffin

Fraser Lake by-election candidate for councillor: Alan Laffin

Alan Laffin

Hello everyone, I’m Alan Laffin. I’ve been a resident here in Fraser Lake for the past 8 years having moved here from Nova Scotia back in 2007. I’m married to my loving wife Jackie; together we have two, now teenage children, Josh and Mackenzie. I’m an avid outdoors man who enjoys fishing, hiking, hunting, and camping with friends and family. I work for Fraser Lake Sawmills and I have been involved in our community for many years now in smaller roles such as previous minor hockey president and volunteer. We have had our children involved throughout the years with soccer, baseball, karate, girl guides, basketball, piano lesson, golf, horseback riding, hockey and various activities/ trips provided from our village coordinator. I believe this to be an attraction and necessity for Fraser Lake having a wide variety of extra-curricular activities available to our youth. Our town has taken a hit recently with the closure of the Endako Mine, however I feel we have come together in supporting each other and will continue to grow and flourish as a community in years to come. I have a strong belief in helping our town continue to be an attractive place for people to raise families. Many recent changes here in Fraser Lake from our skate park and pull through camp sites to walking trail upgrades and new stage at the soccer fields have contributed to making our town do just that. I am here to do my part, with your support, and put forth the effort that’s required to help this town flourish and grow for my family and the many families who reside here in Fraser Lake.

Electors can vote from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Village’s office on Nov. 28.
