August 16, 2016…Today the Kiehne for Congress campaign was honored to announce Kiehne has been endorsed by the St. Michaels Chapter House on the Navajo Nation in Arizona’s First Congressional District.
 
The St. Michaels Chapter House is recognized as a voice for the people of the St. Michaels area to the Navajo Nation government and is known for its leadership among many Navajo Nation Chapters. The St. Michaels Chapter House voted unanimously in a resolution to endorse Kiehne.
 
“I am deeply honored to have received the endorsement of the St. Michaels Chapter House,” said Kiehne. “I have enjoyed a strong relationship with Arizona’s Navajo community for decades, and am very appreciative to have the support of the St. Michaels Chapter House. I have great memories of growing up roping on the reservation, and even won the calf roping competition in the 1980 Window Rock 4thof July celebration. It is critical that our next Representative in Congress build relationships with every single community that makes up our vast and diverse district, and I look forward to representing our shared values as your next Congressman.”
