In a BTB exclusive, we have learned that recently-installed Discover Burien Board President Sarah Slaughter (of BTB Advertiser El Dorado West Retirement Community) announced that she is stepping down from her position, effective immediately.

This makes for the second departure from Discover Burien’s executive ranks in the last few weeks, as Executive Director Patty Sader tendered her resignation on June 10th.

Here’s Sarah’s resignation letter:

“The only thing constant is change.”

Many of the Discover Burien board members learned last Wednesday that I have stepped down as the President of the Discover Burien Board effective immediately. I am also resigning my position as a board member. I have accepted an opportunity with my company which has taken me full time to Issaquah. It is a move that pushes my career forward and offers me new challenges but does not afford me the time that Discover Burien and the city deserve.

Lori Alden, Vice President and committed Discover Burien member, will be standing in as acting President until the Board makes further decisions.

It has been one of my greatest pleasures to participate with this dynamic group and though I am excited about my new endeavors I will sincerely miss working with all of you.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as President for this brief period.

Sarah Slaughter LPN
Resident Care Director
Spiritwood at Pine Lake
3607 228th Ave. SE

Lori Alden, formerly the Vice President of Discover Burien, will take over as acting President, and according to our sources, the search for a new Executive Director is almost complete – be sure to check back to The B-Town Blog, as we’ll most certainly be posting that story first.

According to their website:

Discover Burien is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation working on economic development, business recruitment & retention, education, promotion and marketing of the Burien community. We are a membership based organization, but do not limit our services to only members, we include the entire Burien business community. We work with Burien businesses to find solutions to their problems to help educate or direct to resources that are available. We also work as a liaison between businesses and city hall to help streamline issues.
