“We haven’t had an economy this bad since the Great Depression,” said George Muñoz, in a recent interview with the Cibola Beacon. Admitting that District four is worst then it really is. Gallup remains one of the hardest hit communities to experience poverty. In the recent years, the Gallup area has seen more closures of small businesses.
Recently, Mr. Munoz’s challenged his rival residency, but later his attorney said he dropped his residency challenge to Genevieve J Jackson because “the wording of the election law made it difficult to attack the issue of her voter registration.”
Jackson, a member of the Navajo Nation said she lives in New Mexico and complies with the residency requirements to run in District 4. It includes parts of Cibola, McKinley and San Juan counties.
Gallup resident, Michelle Lee said “that is disrespectful to me, especially as a Dine’ woman, he is just trying to stop her, because he knows she has a chance.” neither Munoz or Jackson was available for comment, No Republican is running for District 4. Most likely, registered voters in the area will get split between the two.
District 4 in New Mexico is predominately Native American, which makes up 64 percent of the population, George Munoz is the incumbent Senator. Both Munoz and Jackson have the same platform to improve the district 4 areas.
