Patch recalled as CRIT Chairman

By a very narrow margin, members of the Colorado River Indian Tribes voted April 28 to remove Dennis Patch as Tribal Chairman. In a special recall election, the unofficial results showed 469 Tribal members voted “yes” to remove Patch, while 467 voted “no” to keep him in office.

The election saw all the members of the Tribal Council facing recall. Patch and Council Member Valerie Welsh-Tahbo were the only members to be recalled. Welsh-Tahbo received 495 “yes” votes to recall her and 441 “no” votes for her to stay on the council.
