Creeks for James Floyd

Well-Said Facebook Comment:

It’s Tuesday, October 27, 2015 and Nov. 7th General Election is just 11 days away!!! Praying for Positive Change to take place for Muscogee Creek Nation!

Sharon Rose attended the Fact Finding committee meeting last night at the council chambers! She encountered a surprise! She was asked to leave because they went into executive session! The discussion was on the Chairman of the Fact Finding Committee – Shirlene Ade and the allegations and the fact finding that had been discovered about her and the inappropriate way she received tribal housing from this source. She resigned her position as Chairman of the Fact Finding Committee. So gracious of her, right?

The National Council is displaying many problems of their own! First and foremost, forgetting one basic item – they were elected to be there to represent ALL citizens of MCN and protect our interests. They all took oaths to do this to the best of their abilities.

It almost seems as though our National Council is a somewhat “private club” and they almost take a fraternal pledge to stick together regardless of the consequences!

The Fact Finding Committee has discovered many items that they are NOT making public to the citizens they serve! Why? As citizens we don’t know the reasons, but obviously to protect people on the Council, family members, relatives and others who possibly can help them in future endeavors.

I personally find this behavior totally unacceptable from a National Council Representative. I have sent letters, sent e-mails and never get a reply other than the auto-responder that it hit one’s email address. When we look at all the current Chief has supposedly done; you start looking at the behavior of our National Council and it seems they might have the same problem with Transparency as the Executive Branch!

There is only one way that we are going to get anything changed in this type of environment and that is to change the make-up of the three branches of government of the tribe. The first step is to put a new Principal Chief in office, one that doesn’t have any one to payback for their support! One that is qualified, has a tremendous work history in areas that will greatly benefit the tribe, and gets nothing but positive reviews from associates he has worked with in the past! We need to make certain we elect James Floyd as the new Principal Chief of MCN on November 7th!!!
We also need to change the current make-up of the National Council! We have an opportunity to put new faces on the council during this election. We need to take that step and do that.
I hope and pray that honesty will prevail over the dirty, unethical performance we are seeing from the supporters and the Current Chief. If this is what we have to look forward to in the next four years, as a Nation we are in serious trouble!

Okmulgee County Suspending Cross-commission & MOU

Found on Facebook:

 

10/02/2015 Okmulgee Daily Times
Excerpt from “County discuss altering bid specs for repair project”

Another non-action agenda item came from Sheriff Eddy Rice. He was requesting the commissioners acknowledge suspension of the cross-commission and memorandum of understanding between the Muscogee Creek Nation and the Sheriff’s Department.

Rice was unable to attend the meeting as he was on a call in the northern part of the county. But Ballard said Rice had made him aware of some problems, and he felt Rice might be waiting to address those problems until after the Creek Nation’s run-off election for principal chief.

In Rice’s information to the commissioners, read by Thomas, he said, “As of 9-22-15, the Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Office is suspending the cross-commission and memorandum of understanding with the Muscogee Creek Nation. I intend to re-evaluate our professional relationship in 2016. And I hope to be able to resolve a few issues in an effort to solidify and strengthen our working relationship while serving the citizens of Okmulgee County.
