Governor Asks For Tribe To Reconsider

Cheyenne, Wy –
The Arapaho Tribe has told the Governor that they don't intend to pay for their portion of a Tribal Liaison. The Tribe says its because they can no longer afford its portion because of what it has to pay for Social Service expenses. In a letter to tribal leader Burton Hutchinson, Governor Dave Freudenthal says the position will disappear unless the Arapaho tribe pays its share of the cost for the liaison. The Shoshone tribe has paid its portion.
Freudenthal says without an agreement, the position will cease to exist at the end of October.
