Shiles, Bob. "Lumbee tribal administrator position in limbo." Red Springs Citizen [Red Springs, NC] September 29, 2016.
According to Tribal Chairman Harvey Godwin Jr., there are currently no plans to ask the Tribal Council to approve anyone for the position of tribal administrator. This comes after the council rejected Freda Porter for the position just over a month ago.
Godwin said he would re-submit her name within 45 days of the rejection, but he has yet to do so. By tribal law, Godwin must recommend someone for the position at some point. Tribal Council Speaker Bill James Brewington said that Porter is highly qualified for the position, but the council wants more information from the chairman before they approve.
