The coming months will be very active. Here's a snapshot of what to expect--and where you will want to be.
Coming first, Brothertown Council and Peacemaker Elections. Here's what you need to know.
- Elections will be held May 16, 2015, at BINCC, 311 Winnebago Drive, in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., for the following positions—Vice Chair, Council Member (2), and Peacemaker. After voting, stick around for lunch!
- Absentee ballots were sent with the newsletter and must be received by the Election Committee prior to the closing of the election. Remember to ireturn the completed Validation Form with your ballot in the sealed envelope.
- So you know....on Friday, April 17, a U.S. Post Office error in handling resulted in a very limited number of (two known) absentee ballots being returned to the sender—in error. Upon being made aware of the error, the Election Committee immediately contacted representatives of the Fond du Lac post office to address the matter, ensure that it was resolved (the box below the Tribe's was closed, leading to the error), and followed up with the two individuals who contacted the Election Commmittee regarding the Post Office's return of ballots. Those whose ballots were returned were asked to resend the ballots to the Tribe's Post Office box number.
- Questions can be directed to Election Committee members Barb Roloff at (920) 517-6659 or Mary Huberty at (920) 960-7433.
