He just cannot tell the truth!! He wants to blame everyone except himself.
New Topic Requested: Budget and Funding
We are in debt $18M plus $66M. We are taking out loans. What measures have been done prior to making tis decision? Can anyone please tell us how many positions were eliminated and how much money was saved; how many assets were sold to put toward this debt; which program budgets were cut and by how much; if there was any type of hiring freeze to help more money go towards this debt . Can we please see or does anyone know the plan to pay this money back? I understand in times of debt and economic shortfalls not everyone is going to be happy and there will be many sacrifices. What sacrifices are being made other than borrowing more money?
New post please
So do all you Tiger fans still think GT was a great leader?
He has always been a corrupt/greedy sociopath and will remain so until his death. He & his administration created the mess we now have. Anyone who still believes in him must be delusional! It is so nice not to see his picture plastered everywhere and hear him praising himself.
VOC: New Topic Request
In light of campaigning in Indian Country, here are links on how leading candidates are addressing tribes:
Fmr. Sec. Hillary Clinton
“Growing Together: Hillary Clinton’s Vision for Building a Brighter Future for Native Americans” from from her campaign’s webpage.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT)
“Empowering Tribal Nations” from his campaign’s webpage.
“In Arizona, Sanders woos Native Americans” from the Associated Press and “Bernie Sanders Replaces Stump Speech with Epic Call for Native American Justice in Arizona” from US Uncut.*
*The first article is slightly biased against the Senator but is the AP wire most news outlets reported for the March 17th event. The second article is biased towards Sanders but includes video of the full speech.
Trump has no website dedicated to Native issues, but here are some reported positions:
“Donald Trump and Jeb Bush Find Common Ground on Washington’s Football Team” from the NYT reporting on Trump’s defense of the Washington NFL team’s name.
“The Connecticut Roots Of Trump’s First Big Slur” from the Hartford Currant remembering Trump’s testimony to the House Subcommittee on Native Americans in 1993 concerning Tribal casinos.
Possibly a new topic.
May be a rumor but could be true. The Health Department is millions and millions in the hole. Upwards to $50million. Staff was getting double, triple, quadruple their pay for holiday and over time pay. Where is the transparency? Tell us administration.
Request for new post.
No more bashing on this site! what are you NOW doing for the tribe or it’s citizens? Nothing except to complain as far as I can tell. At least you can talk to council members and hope that they will listen. They don’t answer their phones. If that is not working, sent all members of the council an email/letter/message. This last suggestion worked for me; it got their attention.
If some of you spent as much time working to improve the tribe as you do bashing, our tribe could be in much better shape.
I am fed up with all the negative comments. Start with suggestions for improvement. For starters, educate yourself on the laws, learn how the fnancials are processed, read up on the judicial branch, in fact, learn all you can about each branch so that you contribute constructively to your tribe.
