Letter to the Editor: Examining the Navajo Housing Authority crisis

E-mail Print PDF
March 6, 2017

I have been thinking very hard about whether I should talk about the NHA situation.  My Dad [Rex T. Kontz] used to say “Richard you need to understand:  in Tribal government and politics the people with power can’t stand the truth, the truth hurts too much”.   He also said: “you can’t expect...

Cibola County Commission and new County Treasurer have violated their Oath of Office to the New Mexico Constitution, and State Statutes.  I am speaking of

The Board of Education placed Superintendent Frank Chiapetti on administrative leave with pay for the remainder of his employment with the Board of Education.  The Board of Education will honor his current employment contract, but the Board has determined that it can no longer work as a team with its employee to govern and operate the School District.

Editor,

Dear Editor,

When I first got involved in Cibola County Politics it was in 2013. I decided that I would run for Magistrate Judge in a Democrat bastion! My opinion has always been that no one Party, or individual, has all the answers, I believe that it takes everyone working together to make things work. I also believe that choice is an important part of our Democracy. Without choice our society loses the ability for real change.

As the Chairman of the Cibola County Republican Party for the past twenty-one months, I have opened the doors of our monthly meetings to all people from both the Republican and Democratic Party. We have had appointed leaders an elected officials speak and it...
