If Pres. Shirley is so concerned about spending money, let me ask why do you need 14 personal security staff to guard you and it gets paid for by Navajo funding? How come their suits are all paid for by Navajo dollars? The First Lady, Vikki Begay Shirley wears $700 designer clothes by Navajo designers and that all gets paid for with Navajo dollars? And how come you continuously fly when you could drive? And if you were so concerned about money, how come you pay your executive staff an average of $100,000 each? I'd also like to ask if your nanny for your children, how come her salary comes from the executive STAFF BUDGET and not out of your personal spending dollars? Also, how come you didn't mention to the media your executive staff expenditures and travel budget? Be fair President Joe Shirley. Let's make sure the facts are shared with the PRESS.

Let's add to as well:
the private vehicle fleet of at least (2) Year 2007 model "black" vehicles, i.e. SUV, and the installation of 10' foot barriers (fencing and concrete blocks surrounding the Presidential home in Window Rock, AZ.

THis while the neighborhood homes on the block and surrounding area have to face the onslaught of vandelism and property damage not too mention the public view drive-bys of who is home and who is not.
