Endorsed Board Nominee Jodi Mitchell
Sealaska’s operations are performing better than ever – record profits, benefits, and dividends to shareholders, and a profitable future as we grow the company. None of this happened by accident – it took courage, speaking up, and trusting in the talented management team we have assembled. Our investments in ocean health will grow Sealaska into the future as we support shareholders to help sustain our people and environment for the next 10,000 years.
Leadership requires we stand up and speak on behalf of the rights and well being of shareholders. I and others spoke up at critical times to push Sealaska to profitability. If we aren’t making money we can’t grow shareholder dividends and benefits, invest in our youth, our sacred cultures and languages, or fight for subsistence, landless, land for veterans, tribal sovereignty, and other Native rights.
The success of our children is critical to our future, and we must continue to
invest in them. I will stand up and speak on your behalf for more opportunities for our youth, benefits for Elders, and all shareholders. I ask for your vote and your support of the endorsed candidates, so that we may continue to represent your interests in the boardroom and beyond.
