The Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians, the governing body of Rolling Hills Casino, is in the midst of changes in tribal leadership and membership. This includes the disenrollment of some members and replacement of most council members, although the tribal chairman, Andy Freeman, remains in his position. Some of the council members chose to vacate their seats on the council during a recent annual general council meeting, which involves the participation of all tribal members that attend.
Rolling Hills Casino remains under the management of the same executive team responsible for twelve years of successful operation and the employment of over 500 North State residents.
“Rolling Hills Casino has operated as an independent business from the day we opened” stated Bruce Thomas, CEO, Rolling Hills Casino. “Chairman Freeman has asked that we remain focused on delivering outstanding guest service and preserve our position as leaders in our community.”
Since opening in 2002, Rolling Hills Casino has implemented sound operational strategies:
- Provide the community with a safe, enjoyable venue for entertainment
- Provide I-5 Travelers with a safe, fun place to break from their travels and enjoy Tehama County
- Employ an average of 500 North State residents with no layoffs in its 12 year history
- Provide an increasing amount of charitable contributions to the community, with a focus on education
- Form meaningful, mutually beneficial relationships with vendors and partners
“Leadership changes amongst Native American tribes are not uncommon” said Thomas. “What sets us apart from other tribes who have dealt with this, is our operational and financial stability as a stand-alone business.”
