Swinomish chairman tells residents not to fear


ANACORTES — Swinomish Indian Tribal Community Chairman Brian Cladoosby told the Anacortes City Council on Monday night that local residents need not fear tribal action as portrayed in a recent letter written by Skagit County commissioners.

The county released a letter in early December that said should the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs approve amendments to the Swinomish constitution, it could give the tribe regulatory power over the Anacortes refineries on March Point, erode the refineries’ ability to operate under consistent regulations and violate their constitutional rights to due process.
