Dear Respected Elders & Members;
Re: Update on Membership Law & Land Code Amendments Vote &
Second Vote Date: June 25th (same day as Chief & Council vote)

HISWKE SIIAM to all families who practiced their democratic right to vote. We appreciate your support and we will need you and your family to vote once again on June 25th, 2013. It is disappointing that we were short a few voters to pass the Membership Law & Land Code Amendments. However, we did have very positive support on these two important issues. Here’s a summary of the vote that recently took place on February 21 and 22:

Land Code Amendments Vote:

Yes Votes 162
No Votes 33
Rejected Ballots 13 (could not be counted in overall vote due to no voter declaration in mail in ballot)
