Victory Cherokee Organization welcomed Chief Chad Smith to their monthly meeting
at their Community Center near the Victory Cemetery in Collinsville Tuesday
July 12, 2011. Chief Smith noted this and several other Cherokee Community Centers
along with job creation as examples of the type of work in his past 12 years
as Chief "to help people help themselves".
Cherokee Principal Chief
Chad Smith addressed the Victory Cherokee Organization in Collinsville Tuesday
and stated it was his belief that a new election would be called following
a Saturday July 16th hand recount. He said there were enough votes in doubt
that regardless of that winner the count would be too close for certainty.
He said that only the ballots in the ballot boxes would be counted in this
(the third) recount since the June 26th election for Chief with he and his
opponent (Bill John Baker) trading places as winners multiple times already.
Smith stated that contested ballots thet were not allowed to be cast initially
are of a similar count to the likely difference in any recount.
Cherokee Council Members also attended the Collinsville VCO meet. Newly elected
councilman Lee Keener (with the microphone), Buel Anglen (also standing) and
newly re-elected Cara Cowan Watts (seated).
