Janees Taylor announces bid for Cherokee Nation District 15

PRYOR — CPA and local business owner, Janees Taylor announced her candidacy for the newly redrawn Cherokee Tribal Council District 15 today, surrounded by family and supporters.

Taylor, the 47-year-old mother of two declared, “I’m a proud Cherokee citizen and it is my honor to run for Council District 15. As our Nation moves in a new and better direction, we have the opportunity to make unprecedented differences in the lives of our people. I believe that my campaign will offer a fresh outlook and add a new voice to the Council.”
This will be Taylor’s first run for office against a candidate who will be seeking her fourth term.  Taylor says she will uphold the Cherokee Nation Constitution, and a two term limit, a position supported by the voters as recently as 2011, when the majority of the Cherokee Nation voted to limit Council Members to two terms.
“As a CPA I know the value of a dollar. I will watch the Nation’s finances closely to ensure the Cherokee business profits make it to our people. As a small business owner, I understand making tough decisions that affect the lives of our staff and customers. If I have the opportunity to serve on Council, I will stop any deal that doesn’t make sense. As a Cherokee, I will lead by example to stop Council members from fighting each other so we can all focus on creating a Nation that gives a better quality of life to our people.” Taylor concluded.
Recently, the Cherokee Tribal Council created 15 districts to ensure Council Members had the ability to effectively represent and respond to citizens of the Cherokee Nation.  District 15 includes the communities of Pryor, Claremore, Verdigris, Catoosa, Salina and Locust Grove.
