What do you think about the Mescalero Tribal Council's Proposal to purchase a new airplane for approximately $13M?
Did you know that three council members voted against the Proposal?
Did you know that the Tribe pays to have a airplane parked at the airport, why not sell it and travel commercially?
Don't you feel the $33 million awarded to the Tribe could be best used to improve the livelihood of Tribal Members?
Did you know that there are many Tribal Members who desperately need homes and many are homeless and can't pay for their utilities?
How do you think this money should be spent i.e., homes, subsidize Tribal Health Programs, Elderly Programs, Foster Home, the School's-technology, science, & engineering department, dividends, scholarships, refurbish or remodel more homes, etc.?
Do you think that Tribal Members should have a vote on how this money is spent?
Don't you feel that Tribal Members should petition the immediate termination of the purchase and hold approving persons accountable?
Do you feel that maybe the Council who voted for this proposal step down or be impeached?
Your comments are appreciated. You must voice your concerns.
Think about your children and elders and how this money can be best utilized to make their lives more bearable.
Support the three Council Members who have common sense!
