TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – On Oct. 16, Cherokee Nation citizen Randy Campbell was sworn in as the fifth and newest commissioner of the Cherokee Nation’s Election Commission.

Campbell replaces CN citizen Teresa Hart who served four years on the commission.

According to a letter from Principal Chief Bill John Baker, Campbell spent 35 years with the Teamsters Local Union 523 where he served as president and business manager before retiring in 2007. He also served on the executive board of the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations.

“It’s very humbling,” Campbell said of his appointment. “I was gratified by the chief asking me to take this position.”
