PS – The term Leadership Meeting is just a glorified description for a Work Session that is not a Work Session…Not sure why former Speaker LoRenzo Bates and the former Council came up with Leadership Meetings, which I still have a problem with because before the Pandemic, legislative services was not posting the scheduling of Leadership Meetings on the Council meeting website: http://www.navajonationcouncil.org/meetings.html But now Leadership Meetings are being Posted.
