UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) _ A U.S. Army veteran has been elected chairman of the Mohegan Tribal Council in eastern Connecticut.
The Day of New London reports (http://bit.ly/1aihxXm ) that Kevin Brown of Montville was elected Monday to lead the council that oversees the nearly 2,000-member tribe and its gaming enterprises. He retired from the Army as a colonel in 2011 after 24 years.
Brown took an oath of office as a council member and was elected chairman by the nine-member body. He succeeds Bruce “Two Dogs” Bozsum.
Tribal members elected Brown the council in August.
The 48-year-old Brown said he sees no new gaming projects beyond those already planned.
In addition to Mohegan Sun, the tribe’s Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority operates Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., and manages Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City.
