The Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation held the 2020 Tribal Council and Ethics Commission Election today resulting in three wins, and three positions advancing to the Run Off Election slated for Saturday, August 22, 2020.
Both Ethics Commissioners #1 and #3 ran uncontested, resulting in wins by Jessica Burghart (#1) and Allison Pahmahmie (#3). Incumbent Tribal Council Treasurer Wade Pahmahmie won his seat with 600 votes for a 65.15% share of the votes, surpassing the 50% + 1 majority vote requirement.
