Quechans Say Their President Breaking Tribal Law

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.
