Sandy Fretwell Hollinger was elected to the Tribal Council in June 2011 after several years as the Poarch Community Services Specialist in the Family Services Department (FSD). There she assisted families in crisis situations; helped tribal members who were working or attending school obtain childcare assistance, and planned departmental activities for Tribal children. Sandy realized that many were struggling and unable to obtain crucial help. Ultimately, through her work in the FSD and the love for her people, she followed her heart to serve her fellow Tribal Members. Her desire to be a positive voice for the Tribe inspired her decision to run for Tribal Council. Sandy considers it an honor and a privilege to serve her community so that all may prosper.
