Fraser Lake: Nahornoff-Storey, Sarrah – mayor candidate

Originally from Prince George I have been coming to Fraser Lake for fishing trips since the early 80’s. I have lived in Fraser Lake for almost 9 years and am married with two wonderful children. My parents followed us here in 2007 and my husband Jim and his parents and sister are long-time residents of Fraser Lake. I am a conservationist and enjoy hunting, fishing and the outdoors.

I attended College for marketing and accounting, my resume includes: Banking, Marketing, Accounts Payable, Electoral Supervisor, Manager of Recreation for the District of Vanderhoof, Jobs Options Coordinator/Instructor for CNC and now somehow – a professional volunteer.

The pride I take as a volunteer demonstrates my commitment to community. Some of the work I have helped with or organize includes: Slo-pitch League President, ball tournaments, mom and tots soccer; Emergency Response (Binta Lake Fire); Master of Ceremonies at Canada Day; Dennis Hiatt Mud Bogs; Spruce City Wildlife Association’s annual fundraiser; Omineca Wildlife Patrol; Becoming an Outdoor Woman; Community Spirit Family Fun Night; Phraser Connector; and Director of Autumn Services.

I have worked alongside mayors and councillors and understand many municipal practices and procedures. I have drive and determination to get things done and would be proud to represent Fraser Lake as an ambassador for our community.

Part of my vision for Fraser Lake includes: sustainability; to access the aging infrastructure; paving roads/walking trails for easier accessibility; beautification and maintenance of our parks/recreational areas; an elevator at the arena; supporting seniors to age in place; feasibility and affordability of a community center, curbside recycling and public transportation; tax payers, businesses and industry being a part of future community planning; volunteer appreciation banquets; doggy bags/garbage bins along most parks and walking trails; and better communication, accountability, transparency and an open door policy.

With your support on November 15th, we can all grow our community into a sustainable and thriving place for families to raise children and for seniors to age in place.
