Incumbents suffer in Tribal Council elections


If the results of the June 1 primary elections are any indication, incumbent Tribal Council members could be in trouble come the General Election Sept. 7.

Councilmember Marie Junaluska, of Painttown, won’t even make it to the general election, coming in sixth place in a field of eight with 78 votes, or 11 percent. Two more council members barely squeaked by, making the cut with fourth-place finishes. Chairman Bill Taylor, of Wolfetown, finished fourth in a field of six, with just two votes separating his 173 votes from the fifth-place candidate.
