Clallam: Lower Elwha resident asks tribal chairman to step down

PORT ANGELES — A Lower Elwha Klallam tribal member is calling for Chairman Dennis Sullivan to step down.

David Charles requested Sullivan resign last month after filing a request for an investigation with the tribal election committee, he said.

Charles says Sullivan is not eligible to hold the office.

“It has come to my attention that Dennis ‘Sully” Sullivan does not qualify as an eligible voting member because he lives outside the five-mile radius of the exterior (reservation) boundary,” Charles said in his written request to the election committee.

Charles said Sullivan should vacate his post because he is in violation of the tribal constitution, bylaws and election regulations.
