San Pasqual leaders placed on administrative leave

Three leaders of the San Pasqual Band Of Mission Indians have been placed on administrative leave after being served with recall papers.

Chairman Allen Lawson, Secretary-Treasurer Angela Martinez-McNeal and Councilman Dave Toler were locked out of the tribal office on Thursday. Tribal members began gathering at the building and some staged a sit-in.

The recall fight centers over the addition of 212 people to the tribal rolls. Lawson, Martinez-McNeal and Toler are reportedly opposed to increasing the rolls. The tribe currently has about 300 members.
