Tohono O'odham Nation to hold general election
The Tohono O'odham Nation of Arizona is holding its general election on May 26.

Incumbent Chairwoman Vivian Juan-Saunders, 47, is running for re-election. She is the first woman elected to lead the tribe.

Her former vice chairman, Ned Norris, 51, is running against her. He stepped down last summer because he said Juan-Saunders lacked confidence in his abilities.

Juan-Saunders and Norris were the top vote-getters in a primary held this past Saturday. They both cited economic development as a top priority.
