As I watched the newspaper and clicked into SitNews, sadly, there
were no opinions regarding the upcoming election. It appears
that the membership is unsettlingly quiet! Not a good sign.
I can remember when there were great letters to the newspaper
and great opinions on Sitnews. It's too quiet!
As we get ready to vote Monday, January 17, 2005 I humbly remember
the fight of Dr. Martin Luther King and Elizabeth Peratrovich
and thank them for the opportunities we have today. Also
for our elders who were behind them. Thank you.
Locally, I thank KIC, IRA Council, and the Tribal Health
Clinic for hanging in there these past tumultuos years.
It has been approximately seven years since our step into Self-Determination--we're
still here and we can do it!!
Vote for the individuals who have experience, knowledge of protocols,
who is open to ALL membership and encourages healthy debate,
and who will be a "buddy" to our constitution and bylaws.
Good luck candidates.
