Interim COUNCIL DELEGATE ROLAND TSO
I sat here for about two hours, waiting for the Council to get a quorum. I understand that the Delegates are trying to rake up as much money as they can before their term ends. i don’t serve on any standing committee. Mr. Speaker, i hope you put down your foot if you are made speaker again.
COUNCIL SPEAKER LEONARD TSOSIE
apologize to Mr. Tso. I was attending Council’s Resources and Development Committee where many people are pushing to have their legislation approved before 2014 ends. I wish Clinton Jim would stop calling me a liar, while he’s fast asleep. we did away with minimum sheep per unit. but unappreciative Land Board and Grazing Officials out there. and I understand that Mr. Jim supports presidential candidate Joe Shirley Jr.
Interviewed by Marley Shebala and alleged that these “disenfranchised voters” are Chris Deschene supporters but there are many that care about democracy. Many of them marched to the Council chambers in the cold last week and I think that they marched again.
The former Navajo Board of Election Supervisors are also here.
