Bellmon Advised to Avoid Dispute - 1989-08-31
Gov. Henry Bellmon's top legal aide advised him Wednesday not to get involved in a dispute over a proposed drug treatment center in Newkirk. "It would be inappropriate for the governor to sign any document endorsing a drug treatment center prior to completion of the Department of Mental Health's review of the facility for certification," Andrew Tevington said. Bellmon was asked by a group of Native Americans to sign a proclamation about drug abuse that mentions the Narconon Chilocco New Life Treatment Center.
