Five-year contract for Lummi general manager

LUMMI, Wash. – Dr. Ted Wright has received a five-year contract to continue as general manager of the Lummi Indian Business Council.

Wright, Tlingit, is a career educator with a doctorate in education theory and policy studies from Pennsylvania State University. He served as president of Southeast Alaska Tribal College and as vice president of Haskell Indian Nations University. He served as general manager of the Sitka Tribe of Alaska from 1992-95.

Wright told The Bellingham Herald that his priorities are finding real solutions for substance abuse and unemployment, making social service programs more productive, and establishing a salary schedule for all Lummi employees.

Since he took office in July, Wright established a training program for managers and supervisors to improve efficiency and customer service, and all managers and supervisors are required to participate.

Wright told the Herald that Lummi’s law and justice system should work collaboratively with family support services and substance abuse treatment programs to turn lives around. Other proposed changes: Making salary information and expenses of Lummi departments available online. He believes that, as a government, Lummi should make the information open to the public.
