Tribal election results contested

LAWTON -- The results of a second election to determine the next chairman of the Lawton-based Comanche Nation has been challenged.

Michael Burgess, who received 52 fewer votes than incumbent Wallace Coffey in Saturday's election, filed a protest Tuesday with election board President James Yellowfish at the Comanche Nation Tribal Complex office. The Comanche Business Committee is tentatively scheduled to meet this week to determine the outcome of the protest, public information officer Jolene Schonchin said.
