CHEROKEE INAUGURATION

 


About 2,000 people gathered in the gymnasium at Sequoyah High School Friday morning to attend the swearing-in of one re-elected and seven newly elected tribal councilors.

Supreme Court Justice John Garrett administered the oath of office simultaneously to candidates who prevailed in the 2015 elections: Rex Jordan in District 1, David Walkingstick in District 3, Bryan Warner in District 6, Shawn Crittenden in District 8, Dick Lay in District 12, Buel Anglen in District 13, Keith Austin in District 14 and Wanda Claphan Hatfield at-large.

The oath of office was also delivered by Garrett to S. Joe Crittenden, deputy chief, and Bill John Baker, principal chief, who won re-election campaigns. Each delivered an inaugural address.
