res_news_carrie_jones_wins_leech_lake_electiontif.jpg Carri Jones, 32, has become the first female Tribal Chair of the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe and the youngest person to win the top ranking position. The June 12 Leech Lake elections resulted in Jones ousting current Chairman Arthur "Archie" LaRose.
Jones will be the first female to lead the 9,000+ member Leech Lake Band. She has degrees in business administration and accounting from Bemidji State University. She also has more than twelve years experience working with tribal governments in finance-related roles.
The June 12 Leech Lake General Election results, which saw Carri Jones and LeRoy Staples-Fairbanks III oust two incumbents, were upheld as Leech Lake Chairman Arthur "Archie" LaRose and District III Representative Eugene "Ribs" Whitebird withdrew their respective election contests before Election Contest Judge Richard Osburn.
Because there's no automatic recount, LaRose and Whitebird both asked for recounts. But LaRose and Whitebird withdrew their contests after a pre-hearing conference and a two hour discovery process. Bruce Baird, who represented the incumbents at the hearing, informed Judge Osburn that "the burden of proof is too severe," so the incumbents were dropping their contests. Judge Osburn noted that he would issue orders reflecting the withdrawals of the contests.

Thirty families on the reservation are living in new homes this spring thanks to the program, through which the tribe hires contractors to build two- and three-bedroom homes with money from private investors. The investors will receive a 10-year tax break for investing in low-income housing.

A federal indictment in January charged two-dozen alleged members of the Native Mob with crimes ranging from conspiracy and racketeering to drug trafficking and attempted murder.
