On Sunday, April 26, 2009, the Mohegan Tribal Quarterly Meeting will take place from 12:30 P.M. to 2:00 P.M. in the Tribal Meeting Room of the Mohegan Tribal Government Building.
The meeting was orginally scheduled for April 19, 2009.
With the dismal financial reports coming from the Mohegan Sun Casino, it will be your (the Mohegan Tribe's) opportunity to question your elected government officials on the situation.
What we don't need is answers like, I don't know, I'll look into it, or we'll get back to you. This is a critical time for the Mohegan People. It calls for Tribal Councilors to speak up.
It calls for the Tribal Councilors to come forward with new ideas and solutions. Evidently, what the tribal government is doing, is not working. In my opinion, the economic situation of the tribe seems to be getting worse and not better.
Be there, and ask questions. This will probably be tribal members last chance, to ask questions of the Tribal Council, as a group, before the first round of ballots are counted on May 27, 2009. Five present Tribal Councilors are running for re-election. They are Bruce "Two Dogs" Bozsum, Lynn Malerba, William Quidgeon, James Gessner and Mark Hamilton. If these people have not lived up to your expectations, then maybe they should be voted out. When you vote look at their records. Did they do the will of the Mohegan People?
I am not sure if I will be there, but if not have a good meeting. Come bring your questions. The Tribal Councilors make a great deal of money, make them accountable to the membership. We deserve answers. Please try and be there and see your government in action. .
