San Bernardino Council Member Damon Alexander Appointed to Regional Committee on Energy and the Environment

The City of San Bernardino has announced that Ward Seven Council Member Damon Alexander has been appointed to serve on the Energy and Environment Committee for the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG). Alexander will represent both the City of San Bernardino and the San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA).

“San Bernardino is working hard to have a greater voice in regional and state policy decisions,” said Alexander. “Few policy areas are as critical to the well-being of the Inland Empire as energy and the environment. I am honored to be appointed to the Committee.”

SCAG’s Energy & Environment Committee considers environmental and energy issues of regional significance, including but not limited to air quality, water quality, solid and hazardous waste, habitat preservation, environmental justice, and environmental impact analysis.

SCAG is an association of local governments and public agencies that convenes to address critical regional issues. It is the nation’s largest metropolitan planning organization, encompassing six counties (Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura), 191 cities, and 19 million people in an area covering more than 38,000 square miles.
