Otto Hamilton announces candidacy for Fourth Osage Nation Congress

I’m Otto Hamilton, and I’m a candidate for Osage congress.

My parents are Otto Hamilton and Sandra Murphy-Hamilton, I’m married to Geneva Horsechief-Hamilton, and we have 6 kids.  I come from three Osage families, Hamilton, Pryor, and Strike Axe.

I was raised traditionally here in Pawhuska, and went on to graduate from the University of Oklahoma, where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Literature and Anthropology.   I started working for the Osage Education department in 2000, in 2006 I started working in Planning, today I’m the grants management specialist for the office of strategic planning and grants management.   After completing a rigorous class schedule over the years, I now hold a Grants Management Certification from Management Concepts. 

As grants management specialist, I submit grants and proposals to funding agencies on behalf of the tribe and the programs, so I work with a lot of programs, employees and directors.  I also lead project teams that need collaboration and project management.

We are all aware of problems the tribe has, we can talk all day about problems.  There are problems that the employees face, problems that congress faces, problems that executive face.  These problems cannot be solved, by one group, it’s going to take a Nation to take on these problems and to advance and overcome as a Nation.  I believe collaboration is key, it’s going to take all the branches of government as a whole, a unified front to all challengers of Osage sovereignty. 

I believe as a congressman, there should be transparency in everything that I’m voting on.  This transparency is the only way we could hold our government officials accountable.  I want to be held accountable and to be able to look everyone in the eye after a decision is made, or a law passed.  I want the Osage people to know that I have their best interest.  

I stand by my platform that “Our people are our greatest resource”.   Our people deserve the very best the tribe can give them, from our youth to our elders.  I believe now is the time for the Osage Nation to start making an impact in everything; support our communities and public schools, empower our employees, and make a viable effort in responsible accountable economic development endeavors.  We cannot keep doing the same thing and expect different results.  It is time now for progressive positive change.

My name is Otto Hamilton, I’m educated, experienced, a shareholder, and I’ll make you proud of the Osage Nation once again.   I humbly ask for your vote on June 2nd
