To'Nanees'Dizi/Coalmine Canyon Chapters council delegate forum tonight

TUBA CITY - The eight To'Nanees'Dizi and Coalmine Canyon Chapters council delegate candidates - four current delegates and four contenders - will participate in a moderated discussion. 

The event doors will open at 5 p.m. and the discussion will take place from 6-8 p.m., tonight, at the To'Nanees'Dizi (Tuba City) Chapter House. A panel of Dine College students from the Tuba City Center will ask the candidates questions. All candidates have been invited to participate in the pre-election event.

The purpose of the debate/forum is to give council delegate candidates an opportunity to address policy issues vital to To'Nanees'Dizi and Coalmine Canyon's future. Given the many issues facing our communities, we invite all voters to attend this event and receive the information they need to cast an informed vote on Election Day. The Nov. 7 election will decide four council delegate seats for the To'Nanees'Dizi and Coalmine Chapters. Other speakers will address the issue: "Why it is important for Navajos to vote not only in their tribal elections but also the state/federal elections?" 

CANDIDATES (In the order they will be seen on the ballot): Harry Williams Sr., Bobby Robins Sr., Raymond Maxx, Joetta Goldtooth, Harry J. Goldtooth, Robert Yazzie, Jack Begay and Hope MacDonald-Lonetree.
