Hello! My name is David Salgado. I live, work, and play in sunny Imperial County. As a Regional Affairs Officer (RAO) for the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) I strive to be a resource for our members and stakeholders in Imperial and Coachella Valleys. SCAG is the largest Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) in the nation representing 6 counites, 191 cities and more than 19 million residents...nearly half the states population! SCAG undertakes a variety of planning and policy initiatives to encourage a more sustainable Southern California. Prior to joining SCAG I was a Transportation Planner at the Imperial County Transportation Commission (ICTC). I received my graduate and undergraduate degrees from San Diego State University and hold additional graduate certificates in Sustainable Transportation Planning and Public Management. Outside of work I serve on an advisory committee for the Imperial Irrigation District (IID), one of few publicly owned energy providers which is also responsible for water distribution throughout Southern California.
