The Lac Courte Oreilles Tribal Governing Board (LCOTGB) held its 2019 Inauguration on Wednesday, July 3, swearing in four new members and electing officers.
Before swearing in Glenda Barber, Michelle Beaudin, Gary Clause and Lorraine Gouge, four departing members – Jason Schlender, Jason Weaver, Rose Gokee and Joel Valentine – were honored with gifts and plaques.
After the new members were sworn in, officers were chosen. Re-elected by unanimous votes was Chairman Louis Taylor. Gouge became Vice Chairman by a 4-3 vote, winning over Tweed Shuman, and Beaudin became Secretary/Treasurer by unanimous vote.
There will be more on the LCOTGB 2019 Inauguration in next week’s Sawyer County Record.
