    Political Rookie Begaye Sees a Need for Change in Navajo Government

    Russell Begaye, who represents the Shiprock, New Mexico, chapter on the Navajo Nation Council, has announced his candidacy for Navajo president.

He will face opponents Duane “Chili” Yazzie and Donald Benally – two career politicians from Shiprock – in the August 26 primary election. Also running for president are Myron McLaughlin, Kenneth Maryboy, Moroni Benally, Chris Deschene and the tribe’s only two-term president, Joe Shirley Jr.
