I will support the Tribal Council Accountability Program if it comes to a vote, but I will not support the amendments that I received in the mail from the Secretarial Election Board. I will not support an ethics committee. Are we going to pay a committee to spy on our tribal members?
I have observed tribal politics on our reservation for a long time and this committee could turn into a witch hunt on any tribal member they don't like? Who would the committee members be? Would they be people who have no faults of their own? Is our tribe going to be like the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, Mussolini’s Italy and Pinochet’s Chile? Would our own Tribal members turn on one another if they held a grudge for something real or imagined?
I encourage every tribal member to fill out the form and when they get the ballot to vote no on every one of these amendments…!
