Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe: Panel of judges affirms ruling on special election
A panel of judges Thursday supported the July 15 ruling of Leech Lake Reservation Election Judge Heidi Drobnick to invalidate the June 28 special secretary-treasurer election.
As a result, the Leech Lake Tribal Council will have to call a special election to fill the position.
Donald "Mick" Finn won the election by six votes over Donald "Donnie" Headbird, who contested the results, citing irregularities.
