Deputy Executive Director of Operations, Sacramento Area Council
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.
