Southern Ute Tribe swears in Frost as new chairman

The Southern Ute Tribe of Colorado swore in Clement Frost as its chairman on Friday.

Frost has served on the council for more than two decades and was chairman from 1997 to 2000. He left the post after being convicted of drunk driving.

Frost will only serve the nine months remaining in former chairman Howard Richards' term. Richard resigned in November amid a recall effort.

Another election for chairman will be held in November.
