(SitNews) Sitka, Alaska - Michael Baines, Tribal Chairman for the Sitka Tribe of Alaska, announced Wednesday that General Manager Lawrence SpottedBird has submitted a letter or resignation and his last day will be June 20, 2016.

Baines wrote in his announcement letter, "Lawrence has been serving admirably at Sitka Tribe for about two years. His enterprise development expertise was very useful in getting several tribal corporations and a new company call Sitka Tribal Sports organized."

Lawrence was also instrumental in helping to turn the tribe around financially said Baines. "After Lawrence assembled a new finance department staff, the tribe went from operating in the red every year to having a small but healthy cash surplus," wrote Baines.

Baines said Lawrence is a great asset to the Sitka Community noting that he was a member of a local veterans group and served on a citizen's task force who task was to make recommendations to the Sitka City and Borough Assembly on financial matters. Lawrence is also active in the Sitka ANB Camp 1.

"Lawrence generously offered to remain at his position for over two more months," said Baines. The Sitka Tribal Council will begin a search for a new general manager immediately.
