Soo tribe cutbacks
Posted in the Sault Ste. Marie Forum

Due to previous Chairman AARON PAYMENT's mismangement the tribe has had to drastically cut back employees and services, trying to dig out from a 12 million dollar debt this year. The tribe's clinic will no longer see Non Native spouses, causing great financial pain. Yet, the big bear recreation center costing the tribe 1.2 million dollars a year remains open. Strange priorities!

You said it AARON PAYMENT screwed up and now Joe and the new Board is getting the "pleasure" of making some really hard decisions and unfortunate cuts. It is too bad that some of the tribal membership is all in an uproar because there are no childrens Christmas Parties, no raises, no Christmas bonus. I have even heard comments such as "at least with Aaron our kids got a free gift." A lot of people have some really strange priorities. I have to agree you would think health care for Native families would trump a rec center.
