S. Ute council recall started


IGNACIO – Southern Ute Indian Tribe elders are mounting a recall effort aimed at the majority of the Tribal Council and its chairman, calling the move a “revolution” to preserve their way of life.

Chairman Clement Frost and five council members have been targeted, including Alex Cloud, Amy Barry, James M. Olguin, Mel Baker and Tyson Thompson. The only member spared from the effort is Ramona Eagle, who is serving a temporary term after replacing Howard D. Richards in a special vacancy election in February.

Recall organizers must collect 275 valid signatures from voting tribal members for each of the six petitions circulating. They have until the end of the month to do so. It was not immediately clear who would replace the council members if the recall effort is successful.
