Landslide win makes Lambert new Cherokee chief


There was nothing ambiguous about Patrick Lambert’s win in the race for Cherokee Principal Chief last week. His victory came in a landslide of 71 percent.

“In tonight’s victory is a powerful truth,” Lambert said in his victory speech. “I believe this election is a clear sign from our people that they are ready for leadership with a bold new vision.”

Lambert said he was feeling confident going into Election Day but wasn’t quite prepared for the outpouring of support as election results rolled in. Voters crowded the Birdtown Gym for Lambert’s victory party afterward, and congratulations flooded his campaign’s Facebook page.
