Don Moffitt and Galesburg Mayor Sal Garza will host the second meeting of community leaders to discuss shared opportunities to further promote ridership and economic development along the Carl Sandburg Amtrak line.
"In light of the pending expansion of Amtrak service through the Quad Cities, it is important that we continue to identify and develop rail passenger initiatives that further capitalize on the significant Amtrak connection shared by the current coalition communities with the possible future inclusion of the not only the QC area but potentially a rail commuter line to the Peoria area," said Mayor Garza. - Home of the Knox County Democratic Party, 19 July 2012 [cached]

Mr. Salvador Garza
Peoria, IL - WTVP 47-TV is pleased to announce the election of Mr. Salvador Garza of Galesburg to the Board of Trustees of the Illinois Valley Public Telecommunications Corporation (IVPTC)-the governing body of Central Illinois' public television station WTVP. Mr. Garza, an economic developer for the Illinois Department of Commerce-Economic Development, will serve a three-year term as an At Large member.
Mr. Garza is a dynamic community leader involved in many area civic, educational and charitable activities and is sought out for Board membership by many organizations.
Mr. Garza was nominated to the IVPTC board by Galesburg-area businessman, restaurateur and entrepreneur Jay Matson.
Born in Zaragoza, Mexico, Garza moved to Galesburg with his family when he was a child. Starting at age 7, his summers were spent as a migrant worker in the Princeville area and Wisconsin. He graduated from Galesburg Senior High at age 17 and began an eight-year stint in the United States Marine Corps. While serving in the Reserves, he started as a production worker for the Admiral Company and continued his education at Carl Sandburg College, St. Ambrose University and Hamilton Technical College in the evenings. He continued in his career through many promotions to become a Senior Engineer with the Maytag Corporation that had purchased Admiral many years since. After more than 20 years with Maytag, he chose to pursue another passion: community revitalization and economic and workforce development.
Garza received an appointment from the Governor in 2004 to lead the State of Illinois Workforce Development effort through the Opportunity Returns Economic Development initiative. He had responsibilities for all 102 Illinois counties overseeing workforce projects and staff. In 2005, he moved over to an economic development position serving the Western Illinois Region.
Garza, a naturalized citizen, is a dedicated family man and community leader. He and his wife of 22 years, Eva, have three children: Amelia, Sergio and Sofia.
