Poarch Creek Band council chooses new chairman

The tribal council of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians elected a new chairman last Thursday.

Fred McGhee replaces Eddie Tullis, the longtime chairman of the tribe. McGhee previously served as chairman for one year. Otherwise Tullis has been chairman since 1976.

Tullis still maintains his seat on the tribal council since he was re-elected on June 4. McGhee says he shares the same goals of education and economic development as Tullis.
