Seneca Nation elects new president

SALAMANCA — Maurice A. John Sr. looked at the reporters surrounding him, smiled and said “I love Niagara Falls.”

John, the current treasurer of the Seneca Nation of Indians, had just led the Seneca Party to a sweep of every major office up for grabs in the Nation’s general election on Tuesday. In balloting on the Senecas’ Alleghany and Cattaraugus reservations, John defeated former Nation President Rickey L. Armstrong Sr. by a margin of 1,541 to 1,114.

Businessman Kevin Seneca was elected the Nation’s treasurer and will replace John in that post.

I hope to have additional results for all Seneca Nation races sometime during Wednesday.
