FDL primary set for April 5

Enrolled members of the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa will vote for Reservation Business Council District II (Sawyer) candidates in a primary election scheduled for April 5.

Candidates include Daniel G. LaPrairie, Michael J. Diver, Brad (Raff) Blacketter, Bruce M. Savage (incumbent) and Naomi Northrup.

Polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. April 5 at the Sawyer Community Center, 3243 Moorhead Road in Sawyer. The election is open to members who have resided in District II for at least 30 days preceding the election.

Because there are only two candidates for secretary-treasurer — Ferdinand Martineau (incumbent) and Robert Abramowski — there is no primary election for that position.

The regular election is set for June 14.
