A Message from June 2010 candidate John Red Eagle-Feb.

In accordance with the Osage News Election policy, the Osage News is allowing each candidate 500 words on leading up to the June 2010 election.

By John D. Red Eagle, Candidate for Principal Chief

I want to take this opportunity to introduce you to my web site which is The Osage Nation government is currently facing major lawsuits and some unnecessary lawsuits, providing services for our Osage people, and looking for business ventures to help diversify our current resources. In the coming days our people will be voting whom they want to lead them in these government endeavors. I believe our government at this time will need leaders who have foresight not only in the culture of the Osages, but also in health care, business economic development, protection of mineral estate and the shareholders who benefit from the minerals of the Osage Nation, experience in the present Osage government, a definite vision for the education for our Osage youths and a focus on health care for all Osages. These are just a few issues that are facing us today. We are in need of a leader with integrity and an ability to work with other elected officials to achieve productive results. I am asking you for your vote for Principal Chief of the Osage Nation and thanking you in advance.
