Stephen McComber takes Oath of Office, begins new term after Saturday By-Election


The Mohawk Council of Kahnaw�:ke wishes to inform the community that Stephen McComber has taken the Oath of Office at today�s duly-convened Council meeting, and thus has begun his term as a Rats�nhaienhs (elected Council Chief).

The declaration was accepted by Consensus and was formalized via Mohawk Council Executive Directive.

The Oath of Office acknowledges that the primary duty of the Ratits�nhaienhs is to serve the community. Additionally, he/she must be accountable to the community, disclose conflicts of interests, act in good faith, and act within the scope of proper authority. The Oath of Office also acknowledges that a Rats�nhaienhs will be subject to actions and measures set forth in the Mohawk Council of Kahnaw�:ke Disciplinary Measures Regulations.

Rats�nhaienhs McComber was elected in the by-election conducted on Saturday, December 3, 2022 to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Barton Goodleaf. It was the second by-election in less than a month, following the voting-in of Iohahi:io Delisle in a similar by-election held on November 5, 2022. McComber�s term of office will expire in July 2024 with the remainder of the Ratits�nhaienhs.
