Ravalli Co. Won't Reappoint Chairman Over Racist Remark

Posted: Updated:
RAVALLI COUNTY -

Ravalli County commissioners will not reappoint the chairman of the planning board, who made racist remarks during a meeting between commissioners and members of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes.
 
Jan Wisniewski of Darby applied for another two-year term on the unpaid board, but no commissioners nominated him for the post Thursday. Commissioners did not give a reason.
 
Tribal leaders met with county commissioners in November to discuss the tribe's plan to put some tribal acreage in trust with the federal government. The move would cost the county $800 in property taxes.

Wisniewski was criticized and commissioners apologized for comments he made at the end of the meeting.
 
Wisniewski said he might apply for a seat on the planning board again.
