Ignacio, Colo. (AP) Matthew Box is expected to be sworn in Monday night as the new Southern Ute Tribal Chairman, replacing Clement Frost.

Unofficial results from a runoff election Friday showed Box getting 66 percent of the vote to defeat Howard Richards for a three-year term. The runoff was held after no candidate gained a majority of the vote in November.

Also Monday, Alex Cloud is set to be sworn in to a seat on the Tribal Council after winning a runoff election over Ray Frost.
