Tribal Elections Reinstate Gumbs

Tribal Elections Reinstate Gumbs

The Shinnecock Indian Nation held tribal elections on April 4. Lance Gumbs was elected Tribal Chairman, replacing Randy King, who did not seek re-election. Former trustee and council member Fred Bess and trustee James Eleazer were reelected to the trustee seats. Trustee Charles Smith did not seek reelection. The tribe will not release voting records.

Gumbs, who immediately filled the position, said the tribe will continue seeking out good healthcare, housing and "the ability to educate our children properly." It will also progress with its gaming initiative and obtaining federal recognition.
