AKWESASNE — The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribal Election Board certified the results of the annual tribal elections held on Saturday, June 2. Certification was delayed due to an appeal filed on June 8. The Election Board investigated the concerns raised in the appeal and found that none of the issues violated the current election and referendum ordinance.

The official results show that Paul O. Thompson was elected as Tribal Chief and Eric Thompson was elected as Tribal Sub-Chief. Corleen Jackson-Jacco was re-elected as Tribal Clerk. Community members cast ballots for the positions of Tribal Chief, Tribal Sub-Chief and Tribal Clerk. All positions will serve a three-year term.
