Cedric Sunray's information on the Muskogee Phoenix article on Chief Smith is incorrect. It was not published in 2007 but in 1998! Cherokee voters chose to elect Chief Smith despite his personal issues and he has been elected twice since then because he has never violated the PUBLIC TRUST which the people placed in him. His administration has accomplished some amazing things, including quadrupling the budget for services, overseeing a health care budget that went fron 18 million dollars to 310 million dollars, growing our businesses and adding over 5,000 jobs, and implementing strong culture and language preservation programs. Sunray's attempt to twist every story he writes into a personal attack on Chief Smith says more about Sunray than Smith.
