Bear River members seek chairperson's recall
I have to congratulate the Bear River Tribe members on this effort to clean up their act, getting rid of Leonard Bowman. "...the tribal chairperson had allegedly violated the Rancheria's own Code of Personal and Business Conduct conflict of interest/political contributions section that says tribal funds or property cannot be used for contributions to political candidates. A $10,000 contribution to the district attorney's campaign violated that policy, Bowie noted."
I hope Michael Acosta surprises me and does well by you. "...According to Bowie, the Rancheria's attorney has been investigating disappearance of funds from a fund set up to sponsor a stock car that races at Redwood Acres. The results of the attorney's investigation, she said, hasn't been shared with Rancheria members.
”They've been stalling and stalling,” Bowie said..."
This cleansing will go a long way to restoring trust and good will from the community.
