We want to extend congratulations to the Hoopa Valley Tribal General Election Candidates for getting officially sworn-in on this past Friday. The recently elected Tribal Officials are:
+ Byron Nelson Jr. (Hoopa Tribal Chairman),
+ Oscar “Tyke” Billings (Agency Field District Council member),
+ Joe Davis (Soctish/Chenone District Council member),
+ Darcy A. Baldy-Miller (Bald Hill District Council member),
+ Leilani Pole (Hostler/Matilton District Council member),
+ Marla Jackson (Election Board member), and
+ Manuel Mattz (Alternate Election Board member).
We also want to thank Child Development for attending and making a wonderful poster with a bunch of the kids’ hand prints; the gesture was sweet and it made many of our days to see these kids present their congratulations.
Lastly, we appreciate the huge turnout at the swearing-in ceremony, and wish much luck to the Tribal Officials in achieving their campaign goals!
