Candidate Statement

Sam Trumbore is a leader who appreciates the best of our heritage, recognizes and responds to today’s challenges, and builds inclusion by adapting to our differences.

He is a lifelong Unitarian Universalist, ordained as a minister in 1992, who has served the Albany UU congregation since 1999. A graduate of Pacific Central District Leadership School and Starr King School for the Ministry in 1989, Sam values a systems approach to organizational development. He has served as President of two UU Minister Association chapters, a Gamaliel three-county congregationally-based community organizing project, the Unitarian Universalist Buddhist Fellowship, and chaired two UUA Committees.

Major religious traditions are facing strong headwinds. We cannot go back to old ways. This is a time of deep discernment of who we are called to become. This is a time that will demand visionary change. Sam is ready to help guide us to find our new path.
