Meredith Frailey seeking District 15 Cherokee Nation council seat



•Growth of Our Nation
Frailey said “I appreciate the honor of being part of a dedicated and dynamic team that worked together over the last decade to grow our assets from $334  million to $1.2 billion, our health care services from $48 million to $225 million, created 6,000 jobs and saw an outstanding historic resurgence in education, language and cultural preservation. That growth must continue for our citizens and our government. That’s why experience counts now more than ever.”
•Health Care
“With our ever-growing Cherokee population, health care must be expanded in Mayes and Rogers Counties. I will fight for more budgeted funds for mental/behavioral health. We have a substance abuse epidemic in our communities and funding for the preventive project in Mayes county which covered an anti-meth task force and provided additional funding for Indian Child Welfare in Mayes and Rogers Counties was eliminated in FY 2013 by the current administration. We can no longer ignore this problem.  A powerful program for young women which would improve the lives of our young girls is Girl Power. It teaches about healthy relationships. The goal of the program is for girls to be happy, healthy, self-sufficient young Cherokee women who contribute to our community. By working together with our communities, we can help end the tragic devastation of families that are consequently  ruining the lives of many Cherokee children.
•More Doctors and Nurses
“We need to retain and recruit more doctors and nurses. The Salina Clinic is short providers, nurses, nurse practitioners, doctors. There are not enough hours in the day for our doctors to see as many patients and spend the time desired with their patients. During my term in office, I persisted in adding the dental clinic at Salina and am proud of their work.  An inexperienced legislator will have difficulty understanding this great need because they will spend most of their time learning and understanding their role as a legislator. That is why experience counts now more than ever,”  Frailey said.
