Tribal Council goes modest with its stipend


It now pays to serve on the Lumbee Tribal Council.

Two-hundred dollars a month, to be exact, following a vote of the 21-member council last week, with $100 being for attendance to meetings and $100 for expenses associated with tribal duties such as transportation.

We are sure that a collective groan was sounded by the Lumbee Nation last week when we reported the approval of the stipends, but the reimbursement is modest and in line with what other elected officials in this county are paid — with the exception being the county commissioners, whose pay and benefits are at the top of all 100 counties in North Carolina.
