Sellers to take new position

OLYMPIA - Gov. Mike Lowry today announced that Sue Sellers, his southwest Washington office coordinator, has accepted an offer to become unit services director for the American Cancer Society of Oregon.

"I greatly appreciate the fine work Sue has done for the governor's office during my administration and the previous administration," Lowry said. "It takes a great talent to work well with people in the community and present their concerns to the governor and she excelled at that."

A Vancouver resident, Sellers has worked for the governor's office for nine years, scheduling events for the governor in southwestern Washington, working with local groups on the governor's behalf and taking calls from the public.

"I will miss the excitement of serving the governor and the people of the southwestern corner of the state, but I look forward to my new career," Sellers said. "This is a wonderful opportunity for me to help with another great cause."

Sellers will coordinate the activities of the American Cancer Society's six Oregon regional offices from the group's Portland headquarters. She will be involved in fundraising, recruiting volunteers and providing education to cancer patients and their families. She will leave the governor's office on March 7.
