HERE AT RESOURCES & DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE WHERE NAVAJO HOUSING AUTHORITY MAKING REPORT…
NHA CEO ANEVA YAZZIE
How not forfeit $90 million to Navajo Nation is what happened after meeting with RDC concerning proposals from RDC Delegates Tsosie and Katherine Benally.
To Delegate Witherspoon: We have funded demographic surveys and true of all 110 chapters. And you all manage cuz u know communities. That avenue is open and ready. Workforce housing is needed across rez. NHA also needs to be participant in creating jobs so looking at Construction Company and looking at Navajo Trades Organization.
So need more dialogue with Council especially with RDC.
RDC VICE CHAIRPERSON ROSCOE SMITH
RDC went thru selection of Board members so what is status?
NHA CEO YAZZIE
that needs to be answered by attorney and full NHA. so let’s work on dates.
RDC CHAIRPERSON BENALLY
It should be one date. And NHA Board needs to put aside egos. Washington DC is watching and as long as RDC not in mix then DC feels no changes at NHA. WE apponted three Board members and those Board members need to just receive their oath of office. So I’m asking Navajo Nation Deputy Attorney General Dana Bobroff to review what RDC did and if we did anything wrong then tell us so this doesn’t continue to get pushed around.
DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL BOBROFF
I’ll get info in 45 minutes.
