Oneida Nation relations an issue in town election
Some candidates for the board in the village of Hobart, Wisconsin, aren't happy with their leaders' relationship with the Oneida Nation.

The town has gone to court over land-into-trust, taxation and sovereignty issue. The town's administrator is the former leader of an anti-Indian group.

Candidate Lance Kelley said the relationship has to change. "Everything doesn't have to be a lawsuit. We need to create our own solutions, whether it's service agreements or other," Kelley told The Green Bay Press-Gazette.

Jim Henn, another candidate, agrees. "We'd have to sit down and see what they offer," he told the paper.

The primary takes place next Tuesday.
