Mashantucket Tribal Council Doesn't Act On Expelling Chairman

Feather News


The Day is reporting today that the Mashantucket Tribal Council has not acted on expelling their chairman, Michael Thomas, from the Tribal Council.

Councilors put Thomas on administrative leave after Thomas sent a letter to Tribal members in August on the Tribe's difficult financial situation and suggested that they could vote to oust him from the Tribal Council at a meeting to be held yesterday.

It is reported that Thomas will not resign and will not seek re-election this Fall.
