NOVEMBER 28, 2000

Leon Bear was re-elected as leader of the Skull Valley Goshute Tribe of Utah after opponents to his involvement with a nuclear waste company boycotted the election.

Bear is leading the tribe's plan to open a nuclear waste site on their reservation. Opposition leaders Margene Bullcreek and Sammy Blackbear boycotted Saturday's election, leaving Bear unopposed, which he took to mean the majority of the tribe stands by him.
