Ak-Chin Indian Community swears in new Tribal Council


The Ak-Chin Indian Community elected Robert Miguel as chairman, Gabriel Lopez as vice-chairman, and Delia Carlyle, Ann Antone and Alvin Antone as council members.

Miguel and Lopez will serve four-year terms, and the three council members will serve two-year terms. This year’s election was particularly historic because it was the first time Community members were able to vote for chairman and vice-chairman. A change to the constitution was adopted in July 2016 allowing for candidates to run for a specific office and for Community members to vote specifically for the chairman and vice chairman in addition to council members.

Miguel, who was the incumbent chairman, is passionate about Community growth and a growing infrastructure. Additionally, he is a strong believer in prioritizing education by providing a greater level of educational resources both to adults and children.
