Why? As in any election process, certain criterias
are to be met. If they were not then the people are not being represented by whom they chose.

If Mr. Hicks was elected by the people, by all means he should be chief. If the voting process was tampered with then he should not.

As in any election I hope the voice of the people will be heard. I wish the people well.

If you think the Cherokee tribal election system works just fine you should visit easternband.com to find out what is really going on.

easternband.com is a disgrace to the Cherokee people. They're the biggest cause of all the trouble and problems with the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians!

We are accused of printing half truths and lies. When that is what you are given, that is all you can post.
Why is Joe Martin about to lose his job at the One Feather? Circulation has never been better and everyone acknowledges his high standard of work. Call the office and ask any of the staff and they will tell you he was given notice through his supervisor by Michell Hicks.
We are disgraceful because we expect to be treated at the citizens we have served our nation for. The citizens we have paid our taxes for. The citizens who have paid for our lands. The citizens who cast a vote and expect that vote to be counted.
I am proud to know that whenever Michell Hicks hears my name, he stews a little bit. I still can't believe that I am a disgrace when I wasn't arrested for beating a woman like Michell in 1999 or beating a baby with a belt buckle like Vice Chief Larry Blythe in 2003. Love them, Cherokee Rose, you made them what they are.

The problem, BillatEasternBand,is, that you do not print any truths. It's all lies! Absolute LIES! I've been told that if someone submits anything positive, then you won't allow it to be posted.

So maybe you're just another sore LOSER with only getting 26 votes, reservation wide. HAR! HAR! HAR!

So what's the old saying "You must be a hemmorrhoid, you're such a pain in the azzzz!"

Well have you tried to post anything "positive" there? I don't think so. Seems to me your lashing out because it looks like people are squirming. And if it take a hemorrhoid to make people realize that they got something stuck up their butt that might well...get them in the end then good for him.

One thing I will say about Easternband.com that if it is not a fact, it is put under 'rumors'. Very rarely have I seen when it is not the truth, documentation not to around to back it up.

From what I read for awhile there was Bill was running to get the truth out, not to win this time. Health issues. So now 'whom' is it spreading lies ? Before long people gonna be saying he didn't even vote for himself numbers keep dropping.

So you can head to the outhouse now. Have a real nice nite.

LOL.
Rose, I can't call you Cherokee...
You kiss your mama with that mouth?
Why all the hate?
Why haven't I been sued?
Hard to argue with truth honey.

BTW, you probably knew this, but it was Cherokee Court that leaked the Election Board break-in to me.
It is a sad state when a court system is so ineffective that it has to resort leaking things it feels injustice over.
The month long cover-up was inexcusable.
You support a man that beat a woman and another who belt his toddler with a belt buckle.
Both were arrested for their crimes.
Love them if you wish, but be careful when they drink. They aren't of the blood that gave women the vote seventy years before the United States and they don't honor women for the sacred life givers they are.
