Johanna "Jodi" Mitchell

Jodi's Proxy Statement

My mother was the Late Eleanor John-David, who, like her parents, was born and raised in Angoon. Eleanor was a strong shareholder advocate. She fought to help independent candidates get elected because she knew Sealaska needed educated, experienced board members to put shareholders and their well-being first. She made sure I got a college degree in business administration, determined to make me the best I could be.

When I began serving on the Board my mother continued to coach me, reminding me that our job is to make money, hold up our culture and provide benefits for shareholders. Momma passed away in 2012 from ovarian cancer. Before she passed I vowed to her I would do everything I could to help turn Sealaska around, beginning with reducing Board spending.

I know my mother would be proud and happy that Sealaska has turned a corner. We are now performing better than ever in Sealaska's history! I am proud to be part of the team that helped bring us to where we are, with a very bright future and increasing benefits for shareholders.

I ask for your vote so that I may continue contributing to Sealaska's progress.

Thank you, Gunalcheésh, Háw'aa!
