Patriot: Lon Hannah

Biographies

Lon Hannah grew up singing in church with his father and uncle in the Central California Valley. After being involved in local musical theater and playing in various musical groups, in 1987 Lon approached his father and uncle with the request that they sing some cowboy songs for his grandfather’s birthday celebration. Sons of the San Joaquin were born, and for over 30 years they toured extensively throughout the World. Their uncanny vocal blend and true love of Western music made the Sons of the San Joaquin the barometer for all Western harmony groups and Lon Hannah continues that legacy with San Joaquin Junction.

Patriot: Aitor Narvaiza

Biographies

Aitor Narvaiza is the Sheriff in Elko County.

Born in Spain, Narvaiza emigrated to the U.S. when he was 8 years old. Two of his sisters also pursued law enforcement careers.

“It’s in our blood, I think,” he told the Elko Daily Free Press when he filed for election. “I’m living the American dream. It’s only here in the U.S. that a guy like me can actually run for sheriff. That’s amazing. Just an old-style emigrant: Work hard and take care of business.”

Narvaiza, a sergeant with the sheriff’s office, said that becoming sheriff was the logical next step after 23 years in law enforcement and that he’d promised his Basque immigrant father who died seven years ago that he would run for election.

Sheriff Narvaiza has been a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment and is a committed Constitutional Sheriff.
