Deputy Executive Director of Operations, Sacramento Area Council of Governments
Erik Johnson is the Deputy Executive Director of Operations at Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG), with over a decade of experience in administration, advocacy, public policy development. Erik enjoys working on complex local and regional governance and finance issues, particularly involving city and county operations.
Growing up in the San Joaquin Valley, Erik loves the abundance of California’s agriculture, but has also seen how many children growing up in the state lack access and exposure to fruits and vegetables grown not far from where they live.
Erik holds a Master’s degree in Public Policy and Administration from Sacramento State, and a Bachelor of Arts in Politics from Saint Mary’s College. He and his wife Andrea, and their daughter, have made the Sacramento region home.
