"George, lets start with the Truth and address the "issues".
The Chairperson and Council decided not to correct the information that was printed in the local newspaper about sovereign rights because it was a political ploy to stop U.S. Rep. Hastert from interfering in our business. Guess what? It worked! Chairperson Stanhoff emphasized at the meeting that the sovereign rights statement in the newspaper was a mis-quote. If you had been at the meeting you would have not used this as a reason to begin the recall. Be at the Council Meetings and read the minutes before you "go off making unfounded statements", as you like to accuse me of doing.
Your idea that "Those Bingo Employees that lost their jobs when the Bingo was shut down. Did most of those members sign that first petition to recall Tracy Stanhoff? Could this be a mass reprisal for them signing the petition?" is once again a lie. The FACTS are that the Gaming Commission is the agency that shut down the Bingo Hall, because it was losing $10,000 dollars a month. The Chairperson has nothing to do with the Gaming Commission. The Gaming Commission will re-evaluate re-opening the Bingo Hall after the transition is complete. AGAIN, all these facts are available in the General Council Meeting minutes, which any enrolled member of the tribe has access to.
You reference Joyce Guerrero as another "act of reprisal" however that has already been proven to be another lie. Joyce's predicament is the doing of her own sister who is in charge of Enrollment, this is a family feud that began years ago, long before Chairperson Stanhoff arrived.
In your response to my article,"You say 300 people can't represent the tribe. It's Tribal Constitutional law." Yes, however 300 people will not WIN the recall election and many of those 300 people were tricked into signing the petition.
Besides, now that we know your reasons for the recall, it seems you sold this recall to these 300 people on lies.
You said, not me, that the Newspaper was involved in a conspiracy, here are your own words, "...our tribal newspaper should be out from under the scrutiny of the Tribal Council and be allowed to print the truth in government and our tribal leaders dealings" to readers this suggests that you think the newspaper is working with the Tribal Council to mis-lead the people, and you are still accusing the paper of this when in own your own words you say, "The Tribal Newspaper (if it were free press) would be a vital element to a true democracy of this tribe," You are the one attacking the newspaper, saying it is not free press, these are your own words, George.
You say, "Main thing is...the tribe is not a business corporation, and we aren't to be treated as stockholders in a company." Yes, the tribe is a business corporation in one sense because we are running businesses and as tribal members we should be treated as stockholders, that's a good thing. This is only common sense, George.
I have "a grip" and many of our tribal members do now too, because we have uncovered the lies that are the basis of this recall. We know that the Truth will continue to be revealed and by stopping you we will protect our tribe for future generations.
Chairperson Stanhoff is our Idol because she has proven herself to be a strong leader and will never give up."
