ELK GROVE CASINO NEWS: HRVMI Chairwoman Lisa Jimenez Speaks To City ON BIA Corruption and Wilton's Subterfuge

Many wonder what can be done to get the many stories of injustice out before the people.   Here's HOW:  Get out in front of the people.  Here's a report about the Elk Grove council meeting on the potential Wilton Rancheria Tribal casino.

HRVMI Chairwoman Lisa Jimenez, stood before the city and explained the situation happening with Wilton Rancheria, the BIA and the city of Elk Grove.

Having a casino can be a good thing, having a casino run by untrustworthy leaders, who lie, cheat and steal....not so much.

Here's the report from last night:

The council approved the signatures that the public signed.   The signatures were in reference too allow the citizens of E.G. an option to vote if they want a Casino or not. 

We agreed to support a referendum but not at the expense of the City tax payers. If they choose a special election it could possibly cost the citizens anywhere from $900k -1.2 million. We will support a vote at the next election scheduled date which is November 2018. I received positive feedback from the public even changing a few minds by just telling the truth.
A bit of History:

Our Families are the historical tribe of Wilton Rancheria. Our families; we are the Blues, Brown and Taylor's. Our families sat on the Interim council before and after recognition. The Wilton Rancheria tribe agreed to a 1999 mediation agreement to not only recognize the 1959 distributees but include all base rolls which included us. Our families were instrumental in Wilton Rancheria Indians being able to achieve federal recognition as a tribe.
Shorty after Wilton Rancheria received federal recognition many of Ione Tribal members from Amador County relinquished their membership from the Ione Band in order to enroll in the Wilton tribe. These Ione members now Wilton Rancheria members are Amy Dutschke family members. Amy Dutschke is the Pacific Regional Superintendent of the Bureau of Indian affairs who is fast tracking the Wilton Tribes fee-to-trust application. These members want a Casino, that why they switched tribes because Wilton's Casino proposal was moving quickly.
Ms. Dutschke's family voted to disenroll our families allowing them to move into leadership at the Wilton Tribe.
Ms. Dutschke's decision to recommend approval of this casino proposal creates a serious conflict of interest. Her decision will financially benefit her family members and indirectly and potentially directly benefit Ms. Dutschke herself.
The Wilton Rancheria Gaming Application presents real concerns about potential corruption in the decision making at the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
It is time for the Bureau of Indian Affairs take action. This is just one of many tribes Ms. Dutschke has been involved where her actions are questionable.

Lisa L Jimenez
Tribal Chairwoman

Thank you Madam Chairwoman, for getting the issue of BIA corruption out front.   We need more like you, so fewer can say, we DIDN'T KNOW.
Elk Grove citizens should remind themselves, if tribes can CHEAT their own...they will cheat their customers.

Wilton’s deal with Brown comes as tribal leaders continue to wrestle with casino opponents over the federal government’s approval of the project. Stand Up for California, a Penryn-based gambling watchdog group, has vowed to continue challenging the project in federal court. A separate lawsuit by a group of Elk Grove citizens filed in June alleged that Elk Grove officials illegally colluded with tribal leaders. “This thing has so many legal flaws to it,” said Cheryl Schmit, Stand Up’s director. “We’ve got a buffet table of challenges that we can pick and choose from.” Schmit said she wasn’t surprised by the compact, noting that the state has a timeline to negotiate in good faith with the tribe. But, she said, the fact that lawsuits remain should give legislators pause.
