Chief Charlo of the Salish VOLUME 16, NUMBER 19 THE MONTH OF CHOKECHERRIES Chief Koostatah of the Kootenai SEPTEMBER 22, 1987 Councilman resigns; December ballot to seek six, not five The 1987 Tribal election will be a little more interesting than usual in that the Arlee district will be getting two new representatives instead of one as scheduled. Jim Steele, Arlee Council member since January 1982, announced his resignation from the Council Sept. 15, to be effective Sept. 18. He resigned to take a job with the Bureau of Indian Affairs as its Rights Protection Officer, a job held previously by Rhonda Clairmont Swaney and Teresa Wall McDonald. In a letter to the Tribal membership (see page two), Steele explains that while he enjoyed his years on the Council, he had to set aside educational and career goals. His new job will allow him to work on those goals now, while earning "an adequate salary and benefits", he wrote, as he serves the membership. With slightly more than two years left on Steele's term, the Council decided to put the vacancy on the upcoming ballot, rather than appoint a successor as the Tribal Constitution allows. So, Arlee may be getting two new faces in December: someone to replace Steele, and someone for the up-for-grabs-anyway term that expires Dec. 31, 1987 — held by Kevin Howlett from Jan. 1,1984, to Sept. 30,1986, when he resigned, and by Louie Adams since then.
