John Paul Lufkins
Candidate for Vice-Chair

My name is John Paul Lufkins and I am a candidate for Vice Chairman of the Bay Mills Executive Council. I work as a Executive Casino Host for Bay Mills Resort & Casinos and reside here on the reservation. As a current council member, I am committed to helping our tribe 24/7. My experience on the Council has prepared me well to deal with the many challenges that face our tribe today. I am running for Vice Chairman because I believe that I can continue to be a leader on council at this critical time in our tribe’s progress. I feel I have the ability to work well with other council members and bring them together as a whole to address the issues we receive daily. I have been on council for the last two terms and have the necessary experience to take us through these trying times we may face in the future. I grew up in a household with parents being involved with council before and had no idea that it consumed so much of your time and energy. It is a life that takes a little getting used to and I feel I do well with that juggle. With that being said, I would like to thank my wife and children for understanding my commitment to the tribe and the membership. Last but not least, I want to thank the community for the opportunity to work with some really great individuals these past two terms.
