Secret Vote on Constitutional Term Limits
On November 12, 2014, the Isleta Tribal Council, by a vote of 6 to 5, decided that they would not apply Constitutional Term Limits until the election in 2016. The Council voted by secret ballot to prevent the Tribe from learning how they voted. This means that Barbara J. Sanchez, Larry Jaramillo, Fernando Abeita and Joseph “Cougar” Lucero will remain on the ballot for the upcoming election on November 29th.
I will post the highlights of the Council’s discussion on constitutional term limits as soon as I can. Check back later or subscribe to Isleta Pueblo Politics to receive email notification of new article postings.
