Delegates accept Nez’s speech as written report
It wasn’t a pressing matter for the Navajo Nation Council to hear the priority lists from Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez and Vice President Myron Lizer.
They voted 7-6 on Monday to accept the State of the Nation address as a written report.
Nez and Lizer were a few steps away from the Council Chamber when lawmakers, led by Delegate Otto Tso’s motion, seconded by Delegate Edison Wauneka, voted to not hear Nez’s speech.
“Can I just motion to accept the report?” asked Tso. “He already emailed it out and we read it through. We already know who the division directors are, and he’s not here.”
