Poarch Creek Band swears in new council chairman

The Poarch Band of Creek Indians in Alabama swore in a new council chairman to replace Fred L. McGhee, who died unexpectedly three weeks ago.

Buford Rolin was elected chairman by a unanimous vote of the council. He had been acting chairman since McGhee's death.

Since Rolin was serving as vice chairman, the council had to find a replacement. After a coin toss, newcomer Stephanie A. Bryan was sworn in as vice chairman.
