Bozsum Back as Tribal Chair

Bozsum Back as Tribal Chair

Bruce “Two Dogs” Bozsum, former chairman of the Mohegan Tribal Council, has been returned to the office through a vote of the council’s nine members. He replaces Lynn Malerba, the tribe’s first-ever chairwoman, who unseated him in 2009. Malerba resigned last August to become the Mohegans’ chief for life, according to the New London Day.

“It’s a role that I feel very comfortable in,” Bozsum told the Day, adding that he will lead the tribe in a uniquely challenging time, with burdensome debt, employee layoffs, and competition on the rise.

The Connecticut tribe will almost certainly see some drain of its patron base when the Aqueduct racino, due to break ground in November, opens the first phase of its gaming hall next April. In the long term, more gambling operations are planned for Long Island, where the Shinnecock nation is expected to build, and Rhode Island, where the Twin Rivers racino is pushing for table games.
