Voters Head To Polls In Eastern Band Of Cherokee Elections


September 4, 2019

Voters will cast their ballots this week in elections for the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians tribal government.

Blue Ridge Public Radio’s Western North Carolina reporter Lilly Knoepp sat down with the two candidates running for principal chief of the Eastern Band: current Chief Richard Sneed and longtime tribal council member Teresa McCoy. They shared details about their platforms and issues affecting the tribal community, including the pressing concern of how to diversify income for the tribe, especially as the South Carolina-based Catawba tribe lobbies for a new casino outside of Charlotte.
