Tamara Sniffin to replace him
Tamara Sniffin honored to replace him
After serving Ambergris Caye as a U.S. Warden for nearly 25 years, Dr. Wil Lala has decided it’s time to hand over the reins to someone else. Lala, who has lived on the island since 1989 and owned Caribbean Villas with his wife Susan for decades, has been engaged in community service for years. A retired dentist originally from Kansas, U.S., Lala told The San Pedro Sun, “I have loved being a warden on San Pedro for nearly 25 years. I have had lots of really great experiences, but now due to some health issues I feel it would be best for the U.S. citizens of this island to have a younger and more capable warden to replace me,” lamented Lala.
When retiring from his position, Lala recommended Tamara Sniffin to the U.S. Embassy as his replacement, stating, “She is someone who really knows and is respected by the people of San Pedro as she is the Editor of The San Pedro Sun. Since she is a female, she will complement the other male warden [Jeff Bella] on the island and be able to help handle some of the cases as my wife did in the past.”
