SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - The San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) is continuing to face fallout from allegations it misled taxpayers on a proposal to increase the sales tax to pay for transportation projects.
On Friday, SANDAG Director Gary Gallegos may resign from his post, 10News learned.
Gallegos is asking to be let out of his contract immediately, instead of giving the 120-day advanced notice he agreed to when he signed it.
"The region is facing change and that change is going to require new leadership to build consensus and position San Diego to take advantage of future opportunities," Gallegos said in a letter to the board this week. "In order to accomplish this as soon as possible ... I propose to retire at the earliest possible date."
