Fabian re-elected as KFN chief in landslide vote
Yellowknife, N.W.T. - Roy Fabian is remaining at the helm of the Katlodeeche First Nation.
Fabian won re-election as chief on Wednesday following elections on the reserve, receiving a total of 107 of the 192 votes cast.
Andy Cardinal was the runner-up with 29, followed by Alec Sunrise at 28, Joe Tambour with 18 and Shirley Lamalice at 10.
Fabian said he didn't go into the election with an expectation of winning a second three-year term.
"For me I've been through these elections in this community, so you know, I didn't know what to expect."
He said when he took over in 2009, the financial state of the reserve was going downhill, but the hiring of a CEO and a corporation manager helped to turn things around for the better.
"We put a recovery plan together that we followed 100% and we were completely successful in getting out of those situations, and today KFN, as the saying goes, we're back in the black."
The four KFN council members were all acclaimed and they are Robert Lamalice, Pat Martel, Peter Sabourin, and Raymond Sonfrere.
