BOSTON - The Cape Cod Times reported yesterday the newly elected Mashpee Wampanoag tribal council chairman, Cedric Cromwell, will ask Gov. Deval Patrick to begin formal negotiations for an Indian casino in Middleboro.

"I want to meet with the governor and shake his hand and let him know that there is a new administration in town that's transparent and full of integrity," Cromwell said.

Cromwell was elected chairman of the tribal council on February 8th after the former chairman, Glenn Marshall, pleaded guilty in federal court to charges of illegal campaign contributions and personal use of tribal money. Council members of Marshall's leadership team were swept out of office, and Cromwell declared: "We are going to get our tribe back."

"I want to meet the governor as soon as possible, and how do we move forward with compact discussions?" Cromwell said. "We're in such a better place today, with Glenn Marshall admitting to embezzlement and fraud, which we, as a tribal nation, were very unhappy with."
