On November 10, 2020, the newly elected officials of the Seneca Nation were sworn into office. Due to COVID-19, a smaller ceremony than usual was held with a livestream provided for Seneca members. A drive-thru Chiavetta’s luncheon was held afterwards at the CCC.
President Pagels offered this message on behalf of Executives and Council:
“While keeping the health and safety of our community at the forefront of our decisions, we have had to make adjustments to our traditional swearing in ceremony for all newly elected Seneca Nation officials. Due to the unpredictable nature of events brought on by the present COVID-19 global pandemic and its effect on our communities, we chose to broadcast the event via GoTo Meeting.
Please know, we are committed to providing our people with the highest level of services, efficiently utilizing our resources and protecting our sovereignty. As your newly elected officials, we are very grateful for your steadfast support and appreciate your understanding, as we continue to navigate through this unprecedented terrain, as we work on behalf of all Seneca Nation members.”
