Wakeup call to full tribal council

Letter to the Editor


For the past 2-3 years, our tribal council have not heard “the peoples.” They literally, purposefully, have not listened to the peoples. We in fb land know you sneak in and out of here to see what is the latest in what all of you call innuendo, gossip, fairy tales, etc. Do you have hidden dirty laundry? YOU better start listening … responding!

Yes, the peoples are fed up … totally, totally fed up with personal agenda council and the

ongoing non-transparency. To my surprise, and most certainly to someone else’s chagrin, the first fairy tale has come out, and more most likely to come out if each and every one of you council continue to not listen to the peoples and do your own thing. I, for one, cannot wait; you all will indeed be getting what you deserve. (Bring it on peeps!) The recent elections of new officers within council chambers was a total joke! Just another, one more, indication of council not paying attention, just another indication of young, inexperienced ignorance to business at hand: what has gone on, what is going on, and what will be! It is time for you young dumb and dumber council to take stock of not only what is expected of you but also what actually are the goings on, the machinations of day in and day out job expectations, job duties, “things to be done” by the tribal council day to day, week to week. Actually show some sort of accomplishment from your end of this whole scenario.

In my mind, our tribal council juxtaposes that of the national GOP peeps: on strike, just going to work/office and literally doing nothing but “drawing that over-paid paycheck.”
