Would the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians Be Better Served By Term Limits?

The Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians is currently led by the dishonorable Mark Macarro, who in his ten years as tribal chairman, has led the tribe to violate the civil and human rights of 25% of the citizens. Is that good for the tribe?

Sure the tribe has done well since the casino opened, but has Macarro done even better? He made over $360,000 a year by eliminating HUNDREDS of tribal citizens. His brother is ensconced as tribal attorney. His WIFE, Holly Cook Macarro, has opened her own consulting/lobbying firm and took the Pechanga Business from Holland and Knight when she left, now Pechanga has been paying her firm $240,000 a year. Macarro also gets a hefty salary as Tribal Chair.

Time for term limits?
