By Marcus Bankuti Local Journalism Initiative Reporter Tomorrow, January 21, Kanehsata’kehro:non will finally choose the seventh Mohawk Council of Kanesatake (MCK) chief in a by-election that has been anything but routine. The seat was vacated last winter by Teiawenhniserahte Tomlinson after he accepted a job leading the Kanesatake Health Center (KHC), but the September 24 vote to replace him was abruptly cancelled on September 17, leading to battles on Council and in the community at large about how to proceed. To help you decide how to cast your ballot, The Eastern Door has given the candidates a chance to make one last pitch to community members in their own words. Polls are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. tomorrow at United Church Hall and Ratihen:te High School.
