Page 2 of 2

Erquiaga was born and raised in Nevada and has a background in nonprofit consulting. He's worked in government at the local, state, and national levels, and before moving to Phoenix (to be closer to his college-aged kids), he was a senior advisor to Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval and served as a chairperson of the Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF).

In Arizona, he's worked with Valley Leadership, the Arizona Commission on the Arts, and the Arizona Humanities Council, and was a board member of Arizona Citizens for the Arts.

"This opportunity is putting together a lot of things I've done in my life," says Erquiaga. "It brings my background in public policy, government, and the arts together in a nice way to serve a place where people can live, work, and play."

Cindy Dach, one of Roosevelt Row's founding members agrees. "We're thrilled to have attracted such great candidates, and Dale is a great choice," she says. "Dale's creative and political background is unique and speaks to the diverse interests and strategies of Roosevelt Row ... We're excited about our future."
