Lake Stevens Chamber
accepts Legg’s resignation
"My decision to resign as the Executive Director should not be interpreted as a lack of support for the Chamber of Commerce. This is a decision to take care of my family,” Legg said.
Earlier in the year the Chamber of Commerce decided to hire its first ever paid Executive Director but to no avail. Then, in September, hired Legg to the interim position on a part-time basis. They are in the process of deciding where to go from here.
“We are going to have an annual planning meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 8.” Incoming President Doug Warren said. “At that time we will be setting our vision for the coming years for the Chamber. We will be developing our plan for 2008 and discussing our budget. During that meeting we will discuss our needs as a Chamber for staff and how it fits with our long-term goals.”
Blair Anderson, current President of the Chamber, looks forward to another successful year.
“We wish Robert the best,” he said. “I am certain that we will continue to build upon our earlier accomplishments from 2007 and serve our members well in the future.”
Legg was raised in Lake Stevens and returned with his family after serving in the Air Force. He served as Pastor to the Lakeside Community Fellowship church until resigning a year ago. He also ran for state Congressman against John Lovick in 2006.
