Sitka Tribe names officers, approves GM contract

Dale Williams will serve as vice chairman of the Sitka Tribe of Alaska. The Tribe selected its new officers at a meeting Thursday. He’s joined by Stephanie Edenshaw who will serve as treasurer, and Rachel Moreno, the secretary.

The job of chairman, held by Woody Widmark, is an elected position. Widmark has a year left in his three-year term.

The Tribal Council also approved a contract for its new general manager, Ted Wright. The Tribe did not release details of the agreement, but said it was based on the council’s satisfaction with his performance as interim general manager, and their desire to “ensure stable management for an extended period of time.”

Wright had previously worked as manager of the Tribe in the 1990s. He returned as interim general manager in September, and the job was made permanent last week.

The Tribal Council will be in a training session next week, so the meeting for February 1st has been canceled.
