Third Choctaw Chief election on tap this week
Philadelphia, Miss. Voters will headed to the polls for a third time to elect a Chief since the run off where Anderson defeated Denson was overturned by the Choctaw Tribal Council. Both candidates tell me they have confidence in the upcoming election.
"I believe that the Choctaw people will come out and vote for the 6th time to reelect me Phyliss J. Anderson. I have a proven record with real results and I’m a leader that Choctaw people can trust," Anderson says.
"When we ran the second run nearly 50 percent of the people voted to be with us and I want those same people to come out but I think there are a few out there that didn't vote and we are trying to get them out,” Denson says.
