Did a zoom comment last session & saw that if you present facts & figures - have reputable info to to back that up

I don't this format (listening to your presentation) will let me attach the letter my tribal chairman wrote to Arizona's Independent Redistricting Commission.

I have to drop. I would like to share my presentation with you. I worked for my tribe for 18 years and I was on my tribe's council for 10 of those years. You are doing great work, keep it up. The revolution will not be on facebook.

Email, public comment 👍 got it.

I don't have a question. I developed a presentation to show the differences between democrats and republicans. I developed it for my fellow tribal members because too many were not voting. I cover most of the issues; obamacare, minimum wage, public school funding, gun control, etc. My reservation is located in NW Arizona.
