Amy Worth

Former Mayor of Orinda & City Rep on the Metropolitan Transportation Commission

Introducing our March 24th Speaker Amy R. Worth

Amy Worth just completed 32 years of service to local government where she served as a member of the Orinda City Council and five-time Mayor of Orinda.  She also served in a variety of county, regional and state positions, and prior to being elected to the Orinda City Council, she served as Chair of the Contra Costa Library Commission.  She currently serves as Chair of the County Connection Transit Authority.  She served on the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, where she represents the Contra Costa Cities.  The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) is the transportation planning, coordinating, and financing agency for the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area.  

She was elected to the Orinda City Council in 1998 and served five terms as Mayor of Orinda.  She is past Chair of the Contra Costa Transportation Authority, and also served as a board member of the Central Contra Costa Transit Authority, the Central Contra Costa Solid Waste Authority and The California Council of Governments. She currently serves as Chair of the County Connection Board.   

For her role in the development of the Contra Costa 25 year Transportation program and the successful passage of Measure J, she was honored by the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of the Women’s Transportation Seminar as the 2005 Woman of the Year.  Measure J combined transportation investment in projects and programs, such as the Caldecott tunnel, with innovative cooperative land use planning and open space preservation elements.  The measure was the result of a significant cooperative effort spanning two years, involving environmental, business and labor groups, community residents, transportation professionals and elected officials.

Committed to the principles of regional cooperation, she served as Chair of the Contra Costa Mayors Conference and was President of the League of California Cities, East Bay Division.  She advocated in Sacramento on behalf of local government, having served as Chair of the League’s Policy Committee for Administrative Services.

Prior to serving in elected office, her volunteer service included serving as Chair of the Contra Costa Library Commission, President of the Friends of the Orinda Library, Vice President of the California Alumni Association and President of the Junior League of San Francisco.  

She holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Berkeley and a master’s degree from Cal State University, East Bay.  Amy and her husband Tom are the parents of three grown daughters.
