Today the Oneida Business Committee will address the petition sponsored by Frank Cornelius to dissolve Oneida Seven Generations Corporation and the BC should schedule a date for the matter to be added to an upcoming General Tribal Council meeting agenda.

It should be noted that also on today’s BC Regular Meeting agenda is consideration of a proposed GTC Meeting Law.

While the proposed law has flaws it does advocate this:

A petition received at least sixty days before a GTC meeting will be placed on the upcoming GTC meeting agenda.

The petition to dissolve OSGC with over 350 signatures was delivered to the Tribal Secretary’s office on Tuesday July 9, 2013.

The next GTC Meeting is the Annual Budget Meeting on September 21, 2013 and the agenda will be devoted to that important topic.

The next scheduled GTC Meeting is Saturday October 12, 2013, more than 90 days after the petition to dissolve OSGC was received by the Tribal Secretary’s office.

Therefore, the petition to dissolve OSGC should be placed on the upcoming October 12, 2013 GTC Meeting Agenda.

The BC needs to let GTC vote.


UPDATE: After saying he wanted GTC to be able to address the petition to dissolve OSGC at the October 12, 2013 GTC Meeting, Chairperson Delgado folded like a lawn chair in the face of empty excuses and flimsy warnings. Obviously, taking action will have financial consequences, but so will inaction.

OSGC representatives claimed that they are no longer trying to market incinerators to other tribes and municipalities and that any appearances being made at conferences to do just that by OSGC President & Chair Atty. Bill Cornelius are his own business. Oneida Eye would like to see an audit of Bill’s corporate correspondence and credit cards regarding that seemingly unlikely claim, and the same goes for the appearances being made by Treas. Tina Danforth as it seems that, like OSGC, she’s trying to cash in on marketing genocide.

If OSGC isn’t still in the incinerator business, why do they discuss their ‘Energy Project’ in their Narrative Report as of June 30, 2013? Most likely the claims made at the meeting were just more lies from OSGC.

[Side note: When it was announced today that there’s an opening on the OSGC Board due to the resignation of non-Tribal member Paul Linzmeyer, Tina Danforth insistently asked what the reason for his resignation was and requested a copy of Linzmeyer’s resignation letter explaining the reason, as did Council member Paul Ninham. When it was announced that Tribe member & former OSGC CEO Kevin Cornelius had resigned from the corporation? Crickets. Hmm.]

The fact that unwinding OSGC is complex is sufficient evidence that they’ve been allowed to mutate and metastasize unchecked.

Consider this: OSGC has launched numerous LLCs and Inc.s in Wisconsin and elsewhere but the Oneida Tribe has no corporate laws, and – no – charters & by-laws do not qualify as legislation. In essence, Oneida’s Tribally-chartered corporations are lawless.

Plexus, Airadigm, Nature’s Way, OSGC…quite a track record.

Unfortunately, this best exemplifies what has happened to the Oneida Tribe when they’ve trusted the Business Committee to oversee those who say to follow them down the path to ‘economic development’:
