CRIT members go to polls

Colorado River Indian Tribes will conduct a General Election Saturday.

The voting polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

CRIT residents living in District 1 (north of Burns Road) will vote at the CRIT Administration Office; tribal members living in District 2 (south of Burns Road) will vote at the CRIT Head Start Center.

Running for the office of Vice Chairman are Luigi Lomavitu and Sylvia "Cindy" Homer. Current Vice Chairman Wayne Patch Sr., will not run after serving two years in office.

The vice chairman position is a four-year term.

Patch's predecessor was Eldred Enas, who decided to run for the chairman's seat in 2008. Enas was required to resign to run for the chairman's seat, hence the two-year term.

Three seats on the Tribal Council are expiring for Herman "TJ" Laffoon, Richard Armstrong and Dennis Welsh Jr. Armstrong chose not to seek another term and incumbents Laffoon and Welsh are running again.

Challengers include Leo Scott Sr., Iris Leivas, Charmane Miller, Edward K. Yava Sr., Jason Scott, Dennis Patch, Angela Nez and Johnson Fisher.

The tribal council seats are four-year terms.

For submitted candidate platforms, see accompanying story.
