Joseph Thornton: Candidate statement for 2022 Osage Nation General Election

If elected, I will carry out the constitutional duties of the Assistant Principal Chief. I will support the initiatives and projects of the Osage Nation. As much as I am able, I would like to focus on the environment and water rights, education, and healthcare.

My best friend passed away in December. We had talked about my running for election over the summer. He encouraged me to follow my dreams and take a chance to make the world a better place. These are troubling times and we never know what the future holds for us.

There’s a quote from one of my favorite movies, The Shawshank Redemption, that says “Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things. And no good thing ever dies.” I don’t have a background in politics, but I “Hope” that my “man of the people” perspective will offer new insight into the challenges and opportunities for our Osage people. I want to help our people on our journey into the future.

I ask for your vote to be the next Assistant Principal Chief. If you have any questions for me, please feel free to contact me at . With your help, I would like to offer my passion and dedicated service to our people’s needs. I am very concerned about the well-being of each and every Osage. Matthew 5:5 God blesses those who are humble, for they will inherit the whole earth.

Joseph A. Thornton
