Wilk Bill to Honor Connie Worden-Roberts Passes Assembly Fiscal Committee

SACRAMENTO –  Assemblyman Scott Wilk's, R- Santa Clarita, Assembly Concurrent Resolution 89 which renames the Golden Valley Road Bridge over State Highway Route 14 in the City of Santa Clarita as the “Connie Worden-Roberts Memorial Bridge,” passed unanimously out of the Assembly Appropriations Committee.

“Clearing this key fiscal committee is always a huge hurdle,” Wilk said. “ACR 89 will allow us to honor Connie Worden-Roberts for her dedication to our community. Renaming the Golden Valley Road Bridge after Connie memorializes her legacy to the Santa Clarita Valley.” 

Worden-Roberts championed the development of the valley's transportation network for nearly four decades, serving as the vice-chair of the City of Santa Clarita Formation Committee and serving on the city's first planning commission. She also served as chairwoman of the League of Women Voters of Los Angeles County, founder of the Valley Industry Association, former chairwoman of the board and director of the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce, and as a member of many more community organizations.

Next, the bill heads to the Assembly Floor.
