Brian Worley, current policy analyst of the County Road Program, has accepted the position of county road program manager with the Association of Oregon Counties. Brian’s official start date for his new duties with AOC is Wednesday, November 1st.

The AOC and OACES interview panel met with a number of qualified candidates over two days, unanimously deciding that Brian was the right leader for the position through his current experience with county roads, combination of policy and technical skills, and ability and vision to build on the County Road Programs’ successes.

Brian came to the County Road Program in March 2017 with over 10 years’ experience in state and local government–providing indispensable policy analysis during the 2017 legislative session helping AOC and partners pass the largest transportation funding package in Oregon history, including the new OACES Small County Allotment formula. Before coming to AOC, Brian served as public information officer for Portland Mayor Charlie Hales and worked in numerous positions in the Oregon State Senate. Brian is a third generation Oregonian and Oregon State University alumni, earning a degree in Environmental Science and Geographic Information Systems.

AOC and the CRP are excited to welcome Brian as the new county road program manager. Brian looks forward to working with you in his new role and hopes to schedule time with you to hear directly about your priorities. Brian can be contacted at and 503-810-9902.
