Group seeking recall election of tribal chairman
February 9, 2017
PEMBROKE — A group upset with the way Lumbee Tribal Chairman Harvey Godwin Jr. is leading the tribe is calling for a recall election.
The group, “Seeing is Believing,” includes about 15 members, according to spokesperson Reba Scott. A public meeting is being held at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Native Exchange building at COMtech to discuss the proposed recall and the petition drive that must take place before a recall question can be put before tribal voters. Among them is Bosco Locklear, who was recently fired from his job as housing director for the tribe.
