Pulled this from Facebook with permission. The so called leaders of Chukchansi only follow the tribal constitution when it suits them. Should recognition be PULLED from the tribe?
Who is the real leader of our Tribe?
The answer is: Neither
Are we going to allow Nancy and Reggie to rip our Tribe apart?
The answer is NO!
The time has come for a new election.
The following are a list of reasons why there must be immediate change:
Both factions are corrupt, each accusing the other of stealing money, Nancy from the Casino Cage and Reggie/Chance from Chukchansi Inc.
This mess would of never happened if Reggie and Chance would have stepped down after losing the 2011 Election and if Jennifer Stanley and Nancy Ayala did not back them up. Nancy accepted an illegal referendum that was signed by 14 people when it actual required at least 250 people. Furthermore, Nancy stated that there were only 46 official Tribal Members. She then appointed Jane Wyatt on the Council, violating the Constitution in the process. Since Jane had been removed from Council for illegal activities, she could never be on the Council again.
Due to the split, both factions lost a quorum. Nancy/Charlie could not bring Tracey and Karen back from being suspended and Reggie/Chance/Buzz claimed Charlie when it was clear that Charlie was siding with Nancy. Reggie/Chance/Buzz had no authority (Lack of a quorum) to use Tribal dollars in renting office space over-looking the San Joaquin River. $$$
Nancy hired Bulldog Gang gang members as security guards. Do we want her as our Tribal Council Chairperson when she associates herself with gang members? Nancy’s Council appointed Nancy’s brother, Joe Ayala, to the Tribal Gaming Commission even after he failed a background check for his criminal history. Nancy, Jennifer, Chance, and Reggie were once good buddies when it came to destroying the Tribal Office by breaking windows, throwing burning logs and shooting pepper spray into the building. Now they are bitter enemies.
None of them are leaders. Nancy and her illegal Council took it upon themselves to broadcast to the world our problems by taking out a full page ad in the Fresno Bee. It was sickening and embar-rassing reading our dirty laundry. Furthermore, how much money did that full page ad cost? Under Reggie, Nancy, Jennifer, and Chance’s leadership, the Tribe has fallen apart and they are financially running the Tribe into the ground. In the process, they are jeopardizing our Casino by not paying $2,000,000 in interest to the bond holders. Do you know why your per capita payment in January was less than December? They gave your per capita dollars to Dustin Graham. Dustin claimed he was wrongfully sanctioned for 3 years and deserved your per capita. The truth is that Dustin was rightfully sanctioned for having an affair with a Casino employee while he was the Tribal Chair-person and for purchasing an Arlen Ness motorcycle for himself. Shame on you Reggie, Nancy, Jennifer, Chance, and Dustin.
Please go to this link http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/491/tribes?act=1#play and listen to Reggie selling out the Allotees for “Special Relationship”. Reggie says he follows the Constitution because it’s the law of the land. If that is true, why did Reggie appoint David Castillo on to his Council, knowing that he does not live within the 75 mile radius of the Rancheria? That is violation of Article 7, Section 3.
It is time for all of us, as Tribal Members, to demand a new election immediately and to elect a competent Council that can lead us out of this mess that Reggie, Chance, Jennifer and Nancy created.
