Tribal Members, It's Time for Change

KIC Tribal members, it's time for change. It took hard work and perseverance for KIC to be built up to the status many members enjoy today, a status that can easily be lost by mismanagement of funds due to a lack of qualified employees.

The government funding that provides services to all tribal members is not a given, it is only a given when managed correctly. If KIC doesn't hire competent management and allow management to do its job based on the policies set by the council, it will only be a matter of time before the Ketchikan Indian Community sign comes down and is replaced with S.E.A.R.C.H.

Everything that has transpired in the last year financially and managerially should concern every member. It is time to ask for financials and minutes that will tell the story of where we are today with the council we have allowed to lead us.

Sam Bergeron hit the nail on the head in his letter "Basic Roles and Responsibilities in Government". It's time we elected proven leadership to the council and support Sam Bergeron & Richard Jackson.
