    The Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan’s Reservation consists of 6 and 1/2 Townships in Isabella County. As a result of a federal lawsuit and negotiated settlement the entire reservation was deemed Indian Country. I served as the Tribal prosecutor during this period and issues that had plagued the reservation before the lawsuit were resolved. Through joint trainings and agreements there are fewer questions of jurisdiction in all areas of government and the results have been successful. I also served as the prosecutor for the LTBB and we worked well with local governments and I anticipate the same result is possible in Emmet Count. I strongly disagree with the views of Attorney Boldrey. I was born in Petoskey, raised in northern Michigan and recognize the invaluable contributions made by the Ojibwa and Odawa people to the very fabric of Michigan history.
