The Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority d/b/a Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment (“MGE”) is governed by a nine-member Management Board, whose members also comprise the Mohegan Tribal Council (the “Tribal Council”), the governing body of the Mohegan Tribe of Indians of Connecticut (the “Tribe”). Any change in the composition of the Tribal Council results in a corresponding change in MGE’s Management Board. The registered voters of the Tribe elect all members of the Tribal Council.

On August 29, 2021, the Tribe announced the results of a general election wherein five of the nine seats on the Tribal Council were chosen pursuant to staggered term provisions in the Tribe’s Constitution. Ralph James Gessner, Jr., Sarah E. Harris, William Quidgeon, Jr., Kenneth Davison and Mark F. Brown were elected as members of the Tribal Council. Each of these elected Tribal Council members will serve a four-year term, commencing October 4, 2021.

Ralph James Gessner, Jr., Sarah E. Harris, William Quidgeon, Jr. and Kenneth Davison are currently members of the Tribal Council. Mark F. Brown will succeed Kathleen M. Regan-Pyne, who did not seek re-election, but will remain a member of the Tribal Council until her successor is seated on October 4, 2021. MGE is not aware of any material related transactions between the newly elected Tribal Council members and MGE. Information regarding the committees of the Management Board to which the newly elected Tribal Council members are named will be provided after the members are seated on any such committees.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
