Longtime chairman of Forest County Potawatomi Community steps down

Harold “Gus” Frank, the longtime chairman of the Forest County Potawatomi Community, is retiring after 20 years of service.

Frank led the tribe through a major period of growth and development. The tribe is most well known for its urban casino in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

"Through revenues from a wide array of business interests, we have been fortunate enough to invest in the health, wellness, education, environment and future of our people," Frank told the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs last October.

The tribe will hold a special election for chairman on February 10, WXPR reported.
