But also I need to say there has been positive changes at KIC. I think there has been too much focus on the negative. The Tribal Council should be bringing positive policy forward, not negative.
I also understand the need for respectful meetings and proactive meetings. Also open government is strong government. With those comments, I will say there was a conflict with the vote taken at the Tribal Council meeting concerning the recall. Also, there should be a policy about who can bring forth a recall. Like a policy stating that a Tribal Council member should not be able to bring forth a recall and then vote on it. To me that does not seem to be fair to the person being recalled.
A recall at this time is counter productive for KIC. There are more important items on the table to be worked on. That is why I do not support a recall. This is my opinion about what is best for KIC and their members. And as a member concerned about KIC, I will not sign any recall. I just hope and pray the Tribal Council could resolve this conflict at the table.
