This is an exciting time to advocate for the six-county Sacramento region as a dynamic, vibrant, and prosperous economy", said Ms. Lokke.

"We are excited to bring on board Ms. Lokke as the new Policy Manager for SACOG. She will help us raise our region's profile in both the state capitol and in Washington DC.
