GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Some Oneida tribal members are circulating a petition calling for the removal of their chairman.

The petition accuses Chairman Ed Delgado of mishandling tribal resources, including a firewood donation to a wellness center and $800 paid to an elderly tribal member in poor health.

Press-Gazette Media says Delgado suspects the attempt to remove him as chairman is backed by supporters of Oneida Seven Generations, a tribal company seeking to build an alternative energy plant. Delgado has criticized the alternative energy proposal.

Opponents of the plant successfully petitioned to block the development, and then filed a petition to dissolve Oneida Seven Generations
