The San Joaquin Council of Governments’ Citizens Advisory Committee provides input on all Measure K-funded projects and priorities. Established in 1991, the CAC is made up of a diverse group of county residents with a broad range of interests in transportation planning and programs that SJCOG oversees. The CAC is an important forum for discussing and debating Measure K programs and regional transportation planning issues. That makes the CAC a vital part of determining how future transportation in San Joaquin County will be realized. The 16-member CAC is made of members who represent the geographical, social, cultural and economic mix of the region. A member is appointed to four-year terms from each of the cities — Escalon, Lathrop, Lodi, Manteca, Ripon, Stockton and Tracy — and San Joaquin County. A member each is appointed from several special interest groups, including the League of Women Voters, Sierra Club, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), University of the Pacific, and one each from the agriculture, business and trucking industries. One member is appointed to represent transit advocacy.
