A Message from June 2010 candidate Cecelia Tallchief-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. 

2010 – A year of positive accomplishment

By Cecelia Tallchief, Candidate for Assistant Principal Chief

As a new year begins, I believe it’s important to reflect on current opportunities that exist for the Osage Nation. The Osage Nation is on the brink of achieving great things for all of its citizens, specifically with regards to healthcare.

The Osage Nation Health and Wellness board has been working diligently towards creating a new healthcare delivery system for the Osage people. As a member of the board, I have vigorously voiced my concern about services that are not being provided and inadequate facilities. These concerns are not only mine, but also the concerns of countless Osage Nation citizens that I visit with on a daily basis. Current facilities are undersized and service offerings are minimal at best. The board is working to evaluate the financial and organizational effectiveness of the current system. Once the evaluation is complete, we will know exactly how to move forward to incorporate expanded facilities and services. One component of the evaluation will be to hold community meetings to better understand the needs and desires of our citizens.

As always, I will do my best to keep you informed about the community meetings and other important issues
