Orinda Mayor Amy Worth has been elected to chair the Metropolitan Transportation Commission for a two-year term.
“With the opening of the new fourth bore of the Caldecott Tunnel and the New East Span of the Bay Bridge, this is going to be a banner year for commuters," stated Worth in an MTC news release. "These projects will increase both their transportation mobility and safety. I am honored to serve as MTC Chair and look forward to working together to continue current planning efforts and future investment and improvements in the Bay Area’s transportation network.”
Worth was appointed to the MTC's governing board in 2007. Elected as the MTC's vice chair was Dave Cortese, a Santa Clara County supervisor.
