The OCTA Board of Directors and staff recently bid farewell to three outgoing board members and recognized them for their contributions to improving transportation in Orange County.
Tustin Mayor Al Murray served on the OCTA board for six years. Director Murray supported Orange County’s regional interests through his work as vice chairman of the SR-91 Advisory Committee and of the Los Angeles – San Diego – San Luis Obispo (LOSSAN) Rail Corridor board. Under his leadership as chairman of the OCTA Transit Committee, Director Murray helped reshape Orange County’s bus system through his contributions to OC Bus 360°.
Director Lori Donchak, a San Clemente City Councilmember, served on the OCTA board for five years as a director, chair, and vice chair. Director Donchak advanced OC Go (also known as Measure M) and distributed OC Go funds to cities and the county. As chair of the Environmental Oversight Committee, Director Donchak helped identify, secure, and forever protect Orange County’s wildlife and habitat. In addition, her involvement with South Orange County mobility issues allowed community input to complement technical planning efforts to advance needed transportation projects that improve Orange County mobility.
Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait served on the OCTA board for five years. Director Tait supported Orange County’s interests regionally through his work on the OC Bridges program and the improvements to SR-57 and SR-91. Director Tait also contributed to the reorganization of Orange County’s bus system through the OC Bus 360° initiative and supported a College Pass Program to advance mobility improvements throughout Orange County.
