Umatilla Tribes director Don Sampson resigns


MISSION -- Don Sampson is resigning after seven years as executive director for the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation.

His resignation is effective Friday.

Under Sampson, the tribes established a community school, expanded the Wildhorse Resort & Casino, remodeled the Arrowhead Travel Plaza and developed Cayuse Technologies and the Coyote Business Park.

Sampson told the East Oregonian newspaper that the position consumed him 24-7 and he decided it was time to do something new. He has a new job lined up as environmental specialist.
