Cherokee School Board Chairperson Charlotte Saunooke announced on Monday, July 22 that she is dropping out of the Painttown School Board race.  She related that she has notified the EBCI Board of Elections of her decision.

“Due to unexpected health issues, it has become necessary for me to withdraw my name as a candidate for Painttown School Board in the upcoming general election,” she said in a statement to the One Feather.  “This decision has been a huge personal struggle and not made lightly.  I truly believe our children deserve to be served without distraction, and I am not confident that I can do that at this time.”

Regina Rosario will run unopposed now in the upcoming general election for Painttown School Board on Thursday, Sept. 5.
