After winning the most votes in a recent election, Lynn Malerba has been chosen as the first woman leader of the Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut. Malerba, 56, will serve as chair for four years. She paid tribute to the women leaders of the tribe, including her mother, who served on the council for 30 years. “I owe just a huge debt of gratitude to the women leaders who I knew growing up and who preceded me," Malerba told The Norwich Bulletin. Malerba succeeds Bruce “Two Dogs” Bozsum, who remains on the council as vice chair. Bozsum was in office when the tribe opened a major expansion at Mohegan Sun. Get the Story:
