Richard Jackson for President of KIC & Bergeron For Tribal Council

Please join me in supporting Richard Jackson for KIC president. I was unable to remove my name from the ballot once I learned of Richard's candidacy. If I knew he was running I would not have signed up. At the time I put my name in for President the only candidate was Joel Buchannan. Besides the fact that no one should run for an office as important as KIC president unopposed, I did not support Joel in that position or for council either and that's why I chose to run for president. Richard Jackson is a fine man and one who has experience in native politics and would make a fine representative for the members of KIC locally, State-wide and nationally.

I would ask for your vote for KIC Tribal Council and remind the voters this is your one and only chance to be heard. If you spoke to the council this year you would understand that this is your only chance to be heard. I will speak more on this subject later.

Please support Richard Jackson for President and Sam Bergeron for tribal council. I promise to vote for a stable KIC and put back in place capable administrators and work with them long-term. I promise to create a functional, stable work-place for all the members and non-members alike.

Thank You.
