New Chief & Council Elected by Acclimation

At this evening’s monthly membership meeting, the main order of business was the nomination of seven individuals for various positions on our band council. While attendance was not abundant, current Chief Hayward Young prompted those who showed to put forth names for each position.

Many of our membership have busy lives, and for some, this is a big commitment to take on. Yet despite some hesitations, almost everyone nominated agreed to run for election. However, with just one person each running for Chief, Vice Chief, Treasurer and Secretary, and with three up for Councillor at Large, we had just enough interested parties.

Without further ado, here are the council elect, who will assume their duties starting in May of 2019 and work for the next three years to grow and support our community.

From left to right: Abbey Downey (Councillor at Large), Susan White (Treasurer), Randy Skinner (Councillor at Large), Michelle Pike Cormier (Secretary), Don Cormier (Vice Chief), Charlie White (Chief) and Patsy Head (Councillor).

Congratulations to all, and we look forward to hearing from our new council in the coming months!
