Shareholders who are not part of CIRI’s Board-recommended slate of candidates, but who wished to have their names, personal information and photographs included in certain of CIRI’s proxy materials, were given an opportunity to do so. The following Shareholder took advantage of this opportunity and is identified as a “write-in candidate.” The CIRI Board is not soliciting proxies on behalf of the individual listed in this section.

In addition to any identified write-in candidate, Shareholders have the option of writing in the name of any other eligible candidate or candidates in the space provided on the CIRI paper proxy or eProxy. Votes cast for any write-in candidate who is not eligible or who later withdraws continue to be counted for that candidate. In other words, such votes will not be redirected to any other candidate.

No attempt is made to correct grammatical errors contained in personal statements submitted by a write-in candidate; however, any statement believed to be false or misleading, in violation of Alaska state law governing proxy solicitation, or otherwise offensive or in poor taste, are clarified and/or removed.

Immediately following the personal statement is information provided in accordance with the State of Alaska regulations for proxy disclosures, which was provided by the write-in candidate who submitted materials to CIRI by the specified deadline. Write-in candidates are responsible for the accuracy and completeness of such information and statements and for compliance with applicable law, including filing the required disclosures with the State of Alaska, Division of Banking and Securities. CIRI does not perform independent background investigations of these individuals and makes no representations concerning the accuracy or completeness of the information provided by write-in candidates, however CIRI reserves the right, without obligation, to check public records. Write-in candidates may separately solicit proxies and/or incur additional proxy solicitation expenses, in which case the candidate is personally responsible for complying with timely disclosure of such additional expenses and other matters as specified in the Alaska regulations governing proxy solicitations for corporations organized under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, and may incur personal liability for any failure to correctly and timely comply with those proxy regulations.



This will be my 27th address before the Shareholders. I will discuss two items in this statement. AS 10.06.460 this is my fourth attempt to bring to vote to remove a Director without cause. The other is the sentence on CIRI’s proxy to withhold authority by lining out five directors. Failure to line out authority for five board candidates, CIRI takes 5/6 of your votes. What happens if voting authority is withheld or not. Last sentence of Sec. A on the Proxy. The explanation is always found on the last pages of the proxy statement on pg. 30-31 Proxy Interpretation Guidelines. It’s time to take back our corporation.

In 1971 ANCSA was written. I was 16 years old. Years later each Shareholder must judge success or failure with no protection. We must do it ourselves.

10.06.460 Remove a Director without cause is the tool to remove all 15 Directors at once with 51% votes. If you cast votes for me, you must line out five CIRI Directors so they cannot take 5/6 of your votes.

I am 67 years old and cannot wait another 50 years. For 27 years I have questioned the Board’s agenda. There is a famous quote: In order for tyranny to prevail good men and women stand aside and do nothing. The chance to remove all 15 Directors by vote is here in 2023. If you feel as I do, we can vote them out.
