Rocky Boy election draws 17 candidates
May 14, 2002
Four days remain until the filing deadline for the Chippewa Cree tribal council's June 4 primary election at Rocky Boy's Indian Reservation, and voters already have plenty to choose from.
Including the three incumbents who have filed for re-election, 14 other Rocky Boy residents have entered to run.
Janice Myers, clerk for the Chippewa Cree Election Board, said the number of candidates is not as high as in years past.
"This is pretty low," she said of the nonpartisan election, which is held every two years. "We usually get a little more than what we have now."
The deadline is Friday at 4:30...
