Justin Mays announces candidacy for Fourth Osage Nation Congress

My name is Justin Mays (Xu-ah-Wa-Kon-ta). I am announcing my candidacy and asking for your vote for Osage Congress. I am 40 years old and was born and raised on the Osage reservation.  My wife, Lisa, and I have two children and reside in western Osage County.

My friends and family, both here and in other states, have urged me to run for Osage Congress. They have voiced their concerns regarding our Osage Nation, as well as their pride in being members of the Wah-Zha-Zhe people.

Our elders have been involved in the formation of our present government and preserving the deep cultural ties of our people.  I feel we have neglected to tap into this wealth of wisdom.  As a Congressman, I would seek their advice in any aspect of amending existing laws and implementing new legislation.

The leadership we need to govern our tribe will have to be committed to the needs of all our people, as well as the diverse educational needs of our youth that will enable our Nation to put our tribal members to work.

If you feel there is a need for change, now is the time for your participation.  PLEASE VOTE.

Justin Mays. #21 on the ballot.
