News from the CSKT Tribal Council

PABLO — Election officials of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes recently certified final election results, including all absentee and contested ballots, with livestream coverage of the process.

On Saturday, Dec. 18, Tribal Members cast their votes for five positions on the Tribal Council, with the remaining other five seats up for election in 2023.

Incumbents Len Twoteeth (Elmo District) and Carole Lankford (Ronan District) retained their seats, with the new at-large position now represented by Tom McDonald. Arlee District will now be represented by Jim Malatare, while the Polson District will be represented by Jennifer Finley.

Voter turnout increased approximately six percent from the last general election.

The newly elected officials will be sworn into office at the next Tribal Member Quarterly meeting on Jan. 7.
