Single mother for Sharon

I met Sharon Clahchischilliage today. First time. I was impressed with her demeanor and her passion to take action on getting things done in Window Rock. She realizes the frustration the tribal workers are experiencing due to the continued power struggle among the yahoos who are running our government. She supports government reform and was active going out to Navajo Chapters collecting signatures for Navajo voters to vote on reducing the NNC. She believes that our tribal government is still wondering as it wanders. She's ready to work to get things done for the benefit of all Navajo People. GO SHARON!! Thanks for your time talking to me, a single mother who is almost done completing her bachelors in business administration. You gave me inspiration and pride in being a contemporary Navajo.

Lastly, I'm willing to host gatherings for you and will email your campaign with my contact information. Bless you for running and inspiring me with your words of wisdom. I expect to sit in the cold in January 2011 and see you inaugurated as our new president. I will spread the word on your running in Upper Fruitland, Nenanezad, Kirkland, and Farmington.

Sharon's people/supporters are scheming devious people, like her PR guy that she keeps. They guy, a wannabe PR guy, fights with George Hardeen every opportunity he gets. This guy thinks he is some PR whiz - but he can;t do anything. No degree. But that's sharon's people.
Gee, I've been writing this much thinkking the guys name would come to memory. I guess he is so insignifcatn.

So far, from reading all the posts, it's Sharon or nothing. Anybody that butts heads with the likes of Hardeen can't be all bad. I don't like the association of Lovejoy to Morgan. That is scary thought. For sure, none of the "old school" wisdomless scoundrels, thieves and convicts.

The "convicted felon" rules usually have a disclaimer that allows them to "re-apply" to vote after a certain period. You cannot debate without getting personal because your hatred proceeds you. What's your thought on the recent swatiska branding in Farmington? I suppose you side with the supremacists, huh?
Nope, wrong again. Those white punks should be bull whipped..let them wear the marks for life, like those our little brother will bear. When the Feds get through with them, they won't be eating many Big Macs. Boycott McDounalds. And yes, I still don't condone Zinneys as part of "our people". I have no problem with the Nakaii clan, we share a lot of traditions, culture and history.

I would like to see no current CD's running for any position. They are all bad apples. Like to see new, fresh, people person. I like to see someone that would say yeah with 24 or 88.The loser is someone that says "I'm natural". I say this person does not know or have no touch of leadership skill.

These current delegates meeds to move on, let someone like Sharon with governmen knowledge,people skill, know how to get moving to positive direction.I like to hear what she thinks of the 24 and 88.

DO we want another four years of losing services like what happened with NHA, BCDS, the Chicken farm and others under Shirley's regime if he wins again? The tribe lost so much money under his watch. We need accountability and transparency!

no shirley! no shirley!

she is evil incarnate. You peeps don't be fooled by her family and paid followers. You are crazy to vote for a woman who was nearly indicted and should be in NM prison system for misusing campaign funds. She not only misused millions but also allowed her supporters and family to do the same. Why she isn't in jail is beyond me but ask the Navajos she fired from washington office for not being "white" enough. That should tell you all you need to know. As for LLovejoy, sorry babs, you said it all with your choice of the evil half breed, propagandista, Butler, as yer campaign manager.

WoW! Sounds like "sour grapes" to me. She might have fired those people, because they couldn't relate to the "wash-in-tone" atmosphere. Sometimes those "rezed-out" mannerisms are not conducive to getting business done. Sitting cross-legged on a mahogany-glass-top executive desk, eating a mutton rib and slurping MD-20-20, does not instill enough "Washington Pizazz" to be taken seriously. Considering the rest of the canidate field, she appears to be the best of the worst.
