Navajo leaders seek purge of housing officials

Dennis Wagner | The Republic

Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye and other leaders have issued a joint letter calling for the tribal housing agency’s top managers to resign or face removal, but a spokeswoman for the Navajo Housing Authority said the letter was never officially received and the president’s demands were not immediately clear.

The missive from Begaye, Tribal Council Speaker LoRenzo Bates and Delegate Alton Joe Shepherd requests the “resignation and/or removal of the managing officers” at the NHA. It alleges that the Housing Authority board has demonstrated “complete and blatant disregard for the Nation and its people” through extravagant spending on travel.

The letter, dated April 13, does not indicate which managers are being asked to quit, or how removal would occur if they refuse.
