Dems Join Hopi At Election Center Opening
Navajo County Democrats and candidates joined Hopi Tribal officials at the opening of the tribe's new election center in Kykotsmovi.

Sandra Kennedy, candidate for the Corporation Commission, met with Tribal Chairman Herman G. Honanie and others.

County Supervisor Jesse Thompson spoke, along with County Sheriff K.C. Clark, County Attorney Brad Carlyon and others.

Chairman Honanie is seeking to increase Hopi participation in elections to strengthen the Tribe's voice in Washington, Phoenix and Holbrook.

The Democratic party field staff was on hand at the event to help with voter registration.

The new voter registration office is at the highway turnoff to the village of Kykotsmovi.

A statement from gubernatorial candidate Fred DuVal was read at the event: "As we move forward together, I believe that we can accomplish great progress. We will improve schools so that all of our children have the opportunity to gain a high quality education. We will create economic prosperity and jobs throughout our state so that workers can provide for their families. And we will stop laws that discriminate against people, and instead make sure the world knows that Arizona celebrates opportunity for all of its people."

When I am Governor, I commit to you constant and transparent communication between state and tribal leaders, as I believe it will make for a stronger Arizona and stronger Tribal Nations. As Governor, I will ensure that our government-to-government relationship is constant, and I will ensure that tribal representatives are consulted throughout the process of making appointments to commissions and decision-making bodies, especially those involving water, tourism, transportation, health care and economic development," DuVal said.
