WCA to hold election for tribal council March 8

The Wrangell Cooperative Association has announced the candidates for its March 8 tribal council election.

There are 11 candidates for four seats on the eight-member council: Heidi Armstrong, Lavina Brock, Robyn Byrd, Samuel Campus, Frank Churchill Jr., Caroline Demmert, Timothy Gillen Sr., Olivia Main, Edward Rilatos Jr., Amber Lynn Wade and Asia White are on the ballot, according to a list provided by tribal administrator Esther Reese last Friday.

Rilatos, Churchill and Brock currently serve on the council.

Voters are instructed to vote for no more than four candidates, according to an official ballot form posted to the tribe’s Facebook page, by marking an X next to each name. There is also space on the ballot for write-in candidates. Voting for more than four candidates will invalidate the ballot.

Voters should drop their folded, filled-in ballot in the ballot box at the WCA tribal headquarters on the corner of Wood Street and Zimovia Highway (1002 Zimovia Hwy.).

Anyone who would like to turn in a ballot ahead of time for the WCA election on March 8 can contact WCA at 907-874-4304 or email receptionist.wca@gmail.com. Ballots must be received by WCA before 7 p.m. on March 8.
