    Now that the election is over. All I can feel is relief. I am neither celebrating PA's win or BD's ouster. I just want Choctaws to get down to business. PA may be the new person in charge, but it is our tribe, our business. We must all work together to further the tribe's accomplishments. Don't be part of the problem, be part of the solution.
