Navajo Nation Vice President Lizer to Join O'Halleran for State of the Union Address
WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Tom O’Halleran announced his guest for the State of the Union Address is Navajo Nation Vice President Myron Lizer.
“I am honored to invite Vice President Lizer to join me for the State of the Union Address this evening,” O’Halleran said. “My priorities this year include working on important infrastructure projects that promote economic growth for Navajo communities and Indian Nations and Tribes in Arizona and across the country. I am proud of the strong relationship we have built between my office and the Navajo Nation, and I will continue working with my colleagues in Congress and this Administration to uphold our treaty obligations.”
Myron Lizer was elected last year to serve as Navajo Nation Vice President with President Jonathan Nez. Prior to his public service, Vice President Lizer worked in retail management for four Fortune 500 companies, served on school boards, and guided congregations as a bi-vocational pastor. He founded the Window Rock chapter of the U.S. Junior Chamber of Commerce.
O’Halleran represents much of the Navajo Nation in the U.S. House of Representatives. He also represents an additional 11 Native American tribes and nations.
