Taking the Oath of Office

Taking Oath of Office: Greg Mendoza, District Four Councilman

A moment I will never forget: taking the Oath of Office as District Four Councilman with my beloved parents by my side.

Today is a day I will never forget as I was sworn in as a District Four Councilman.  I am happy to report that I was appointed by the Community Council (the “Tribal Council”) to the following Community Council Standing Committees:

1).  Education Standing Committee – The committee provides recommendations and assistance on policy formulation and clarification to the Tribal Education Department and other education entities in all matters relating to the education Native American/Alaskan Natives, in particular, the education of Community residents and members of the Community.

2).  Legislative Standing Committee– Review and make recommendations to the Tribal Council in matters related to resolutions, ordinances, codes, constitutions, taxation language and legal verbiage in assuring their legal correctness. Provide recommendations and assistance on policy formulation and clarification to units engaged in all law enforcement, criminal/civil code enforcement, and protecting civil and human rights which includes tribal, county, (Maricopa & Pinal Counties), state, and BIA Law Enforcement Services.
