Edwards to run for Choctaw chief

Philadelphia, Mississippi (AP) March 2011

Tribal Council member Kevin Edwards says he will for chief of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians.

Edwards would be the first formal challenger to Tribal Miko Beasley Denson, who is expected to run for a second term.

Edwards says he wants to improve the financial health of the tribe. If elected, he says he wants to create an atmosphere of job security.

Denson was elected in 2007, defeating longtime chief Phillip Martin. Martin died in 2010.

Candidates have until April 15 to qualify for chief and Tribal Council races.

The election is June 14.
