Sunlight is the best disinfectant.
Former Quechan tribal councilmen and current tribe members say tribal President Mike Jackson is denying access to public documentation on a proposed new casino.
They say repeated requests for public information meetings have been ignored by Jackson and the current council. Tribal elders Preston Arrow-Weed, Priscilla Prettybird and Vernon Smith and tribal members Valerie Jose-O'Brien and Yolanda Escalanti say Jackson and the council have disallowed viewing of financial documents linked to the bonds and financing for a proposed casino resort off Interstate 8 and Algodones Road.
Under tribal law, they say, any financial transactions or dealings must be documented and available to tribal members during normal business hours Monday through Friday
