Bates and Begay meet in Cameron
On Nov 11, Bryan Bates and Judy Begay, both Democratic candidates for County Board of Supervisors, Dist. 4, got together for breakfast in Cameron, AZ. They discussed numerous items including the absolute necessity of beating Bob Thorpe.
Judy is concerned about the County road maintenance and the challenges Navajos have in earning money due to lack of jobs. Bryan shares the same concerns and feels that with better communication between the Navajo residents and their local leaders, Navajo needs may be better addressed. Both Bryan and Judy are working to find a way to build a more vibrant economy on the Navajo Nation and hope that their candidacies will advance that mutual interest.
Judy has lived in Coalmine her entire life. Bryan purchased property in Doney Park 42 years ago and has lived there for 37 years; he spent 10 years teaching Jr. High & High School on the Navajo Nation. Judy and Bryan agree that they will work together to find common solutions for people on the Navajo Nation.
