Brugh, Packineau sworn in Friday

Brugh, Packineau sworn in Friday
Both re-elected as representatives
By Dorreen Yellow Bird
Three Affiliated Tribes

Judy Brugh, Four Bear Segment and Mervin Packineau, Parshall/Lucky Mound Segment, were sworn in on Friday after receiving more than 51 percent of their segment vote.
The election held Tuesday Sept. 21, was one of the most well-attended elections on the reservation. The increase, however, may be reflective of the increased population of the Three Affiliated Tribes.
Two celebrations were held for Brugh and Packineau; one at the events center in the Four Bears Casino and the other in the tribal chambers. Most people attended both events.
