Group seeking recall election of tribal chairman

Record Number: 

Shiles, Bob. "Group seeking recall election of tribal chairman." Robesonian [Lumberton, NC]. February 8, 2017.


A group, “Seeing is Believing,” is calling for a recall election of tribal chairman because they feel Harvey Godwin Jr. is unfit. Spokesperson Reba Scott says there are petitions circulating throughout the county, but there is not an official count for signatures yet. 550 signatures would be needed in order to advance to reelection. There are many allegations, including using "federal funds to pay Housing Department employees to travel on matters not related to housing” para. 7). Godwin provided a statement to the Robesonian that said, "'My administration will continue to do what, in our best judgment, is in the best interest of our tribe for the betterment of our people’” (para. 16).
