Top Navajo Nation spokesperson resigns

Deana Jackson, spokesperson for Navajo Nation President Joe Shirley Jr., has resigned after two years on the job.

Jackson said she enjoyed her time working in the office but called it a difficult job. She said she was disappointed the power struggles between the president and the legislative branch are holding the tribe back.

Jackson said she plans to spend more time with her family. Charmaine Jackson-John, press officer for Vice President Frank Dayish Jr., resigned over the summer to work for New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson (D).
