heating plant at the Faro Mine Site. I left Faro in May of 1993 when the mine
I bought our retirement home in 2005 and
have lived in Faro since then. I love what Faro does not have, planes, trains,
sirens and violence. This where I plan on living for the rest of my life.

I came to Faro in 1975, from Winnipeg Manitoba. Once I was here for a few short weeks I knew I would be calling Faro home. I started working for the mine in 1975 and starting working for the Town of Faro in 1979.
I have enjoyed working for theTown Of Faro and the people of Faro for over 30 years. I started out as the mechanic for 4 years, under Bud Mckay and Town Manager, Rudy Couture. After Bud’s retirement, I moved into the Foreman’s position until my retirement. My wife Barb and I enjoy fishing, camping and traveling the Yukon. I look forward to being able to continue working for the town and the people of Faro as your Councillor.
Councillor Cheryl Stubbs
I wish to
introduce myself. My name is Cheryl Stubbs I was born and raised in Calgary,
Alberta. After marrying my first husband and having 2 wonderful girls I was
introduced to farming and loved it. A short time later we had to return to
Calgary. At the age of 26 after meeting my second husband Edward we were
married and chose to move to Saskatchewan. A few years later we added our son
to the family. We immersed ourselves in a successful farming operation. The
complexities and process of farming offered marketing in the agricultural environment;
it provided a unique with varied opportunities for skills development. During
this time, I was led to the Auctioneering business. I acquired my Auctioneering Diploma and
opened and ran an auction business for two and a half years until my husband's
illness. The next 5 years were spent attending to my husband and family,
extended families and farming needs. Upon his death I remained on the farm with
the help of our son and daughters. I
chose to work off the farm, this gave me the opportunity to include Financial
Management and Human Resources, as well as all aspectsof Retail Sales,and this included invoicing, cash control, and claims. I participated in
Health and Safety for Construction Development.
I have raised 3 wonderful children and now have added a daughter In-law and 4 grandchildren. Moving here has offered me the opportunity to enjoy all that Faro and the Yukon has to offer.This is a wonderful place of natural beauty and a safe place to be.
Councillor Lisa Snyder
I was born in Whitehorse but moved away at a very early age.
My parents kept the magic of the Yukon alive for me and in 2001 I found my
opportunity to return. I lived in Marsh
Lake for 8 years during which time Vince and I took a trip to Faro. We both thought
it was a beautiful Town and two years after that visit we sold our house and
Since moving here in 2008 I have continued on with my
bookkeeping company as well as working at the mine. I volunteer with the Golf Club and love to
tell "outsiders” about our unique golf course. Faro is a great place to live
with many outdoor activities available, affordable housing, and safety and I
have been happy to settle in here and contribute to the community whenever I
In 2014 I ran on a
bi-election for Councillor. I was
acclaimed and my education started then. There was a lot to learn about how Council and the municipality worked
and I found it very rewarding. I have
just been elected on my second full term and am looking forward to serving the Town
of Faro residents for another 3 years.
