what an example shirley is!!
first he fights to have a 24 member council,( which is a splendid idea)
now he is wanting a third term. bad idea, simply because he is going against established laws and doing like the lame duck council, thinking only about themselves!

Vote Lovejoy!!

And Shirley shows his true colours. Too bad he doesn't know how to turn on a computer to read these quotes cause he'd realize the People are sick of him. Vote Pedro!

Barrack Obama, take note, this is an example of how you can ignore the law, and extend your power and grip! "my work isn't finished yet..."

Lovejoy?? If she truly wants to help Navajos, she would've done some great things since her presidential bid lost. I mean, what did she do anyway? I'm not convinced she can do the work.

Thank goodness your ignorant and extremely incorrect worldview is far away from the four corners. You fail to look at the navajo tribal government structure which precisely mimics the U.S. governing structure. The insult is really on yourself and your unfortunate lack of education. I am assuming your so-called education was received within U.S. boundaries and your claims directly reflect that lack of proper education. I will continue to put faith in this country's homeland security that will eventaully escort you out of this country - to the country of your true origin.

What? Do not follow any laws of NN; laws or tribal codes are flawed! Fight the big fight while we laugh at all the non-intellectuals going ons on big Navajo. Yeah! That's right, Navajos are just a bunch of clans headed in every direction, confused, beligerant, and dying. Joe Shirley amount to nothing, but at least he struck a cord in the lazy council delegates (forging off my taxes) by the reductions of them. Federal government awards navajo government with our taxpayers' dollars.

Maybe Shirley wants another term to do more nothing for the Navajos. He can't even follow the rules (nothing new). Don't waste your votes on him.He's a liar, cheat,swindler and just a greedy,selfish man in charge. Who does what HE thinks is right for him and not the people he supposedly is to represent and help. He is a loser. My vote is for Lovejoy.

How do you know? You don't know anything about him as far as I am concern he is doing his best and I am for Shirley and still for the reduction of the council. We Dine' need to be heard our voice and vote for the reduction still count.
