Deadline to return voter ballots to the Cherokee Nation Election Commission:
For Serving The At-Large
79% of our Nation’s annual funds were subject to “external restrictions” on how they could be used. My plan is to extend benefits, services and resources to At-Large citizens that is focused on the revenue our Tribe creates
As your councilor, I will work diligently to explore new funding streams and allocate appropriate resources toward establishing state-of-the-art senior living communities and elder-care facilities that can be accessible to citizens living at large.
I will bring strong, resolute, even-handed leadership to the Tribal Council and fearlessly fight for your best interest. I will remain objective and unbiased – ensuring every vote I cast or legislation I propose is defined by the ideals and desires of At Large citizens.
