Five positions up for vote on PIA Tribal Council


Elections for five positions on the Petersburg Indian Association’s (PIA) Tribal Council will be held Monday at the ANB/ANS hall from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Eligible tribal members who are interested in declaring their candidacy or nominating a candidate must do so by 3:30 p.m. today at the PIA offices.

“This time we have three 1-year terms, we also have one 2-year term and every year the board chair’s open so there’s a one year board person chair open,” said Tribal Resource Director Marco Banda.

Banda said that so far five individuals have declared their candidacy, though he preferred not to release their names in fairness to others who have not yet declared.

Elected council members will attend meetings once a month and advise PIA on policy and other matters

“PIA is a federally recognized tribe. We serve all of our tribal citizens, both here in Petersburg and pretty much anywhere they go,” Banda said. “Our Tribal Council is, they’re the head, the ones that look over everything that goes on here from our grants to our administration.”
