Seneca supervisors back statement about ushering in ‘new era’ of cooperation with Cayuga Nation

Despite public opposition, the Seneca County Board of Supervisors will work with the Cayuga Nation.

At it’s December meeting, the board voted to maintain the joint statement issued on December 6, announcing “a new era of cooperation between Seneca County and the Cayuga Nation.”


The statement, initially released by Board Chair Mike Enslow, County Manager Kyle Lovell, and Cayuga Nation leader Clint Halftown, had sparked debate among board members and the public.

Despite the offer to withdraw the statement, no motion was made to rescind it, leading to a 13-0 vote in favor of letting it stand.
