Tribal Observer Issue: May 15, 2004
Tribal leaders expressed their disappointment over the Michigan Senate passing “racino” legislation, but remained optimistic the measure could be defeated.
The Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Council suspended District 1 Representative Maynard Kahgegab Jr. and will vote on his removal from office on June 2.
The removal action on May 11 was in accordance with Article IV, Section 14(a) of the Tribal Constitution and Section 10 of Tribal Ordinance No. 19 for misconduct, dishonesty and neglect of duty while in office.
