TULALIP — On July 15, representatives of the Tulalip Tribes informed The Marysville Globe via e-mail that John McCoy has resigned from his position as general manager of Quil Ceda Village effective Aug. 1.

"John has spent the last 16 years helping us advance technologically and legislatively," Hernandez said. "We wish him the best of luck."
Tulalip Tribal Chair Mel Sheldon Jr. agreed, adding, "John has made such an enormous and positive impact on Tulalip, we know that he will be very successful in anything he chooses to do."
