About Me

Worth Morgan has demonstrated strong leadership while serving on the Memphis City Council since 2016. Worth was born and raised in Memphis and knows "We Deserve Better."

Worth and his wife, Bonner, along with their Jack Russell Terrier, Leo, are excited to launch his campaign for Shelby County Mayor and are thrilled to have this opportunity to serve. 

Much of Worth Morgan's spirit for public service derives from a deeply-rooted faith and his personal health struggles. "Everyone has a battle they're wrestling with. Some are more visible than others. When we understand this about one another, we learn to treat our neighbor with a little more grace and life with a lot more humility," said Morgan.

"Since I was ten years old, I haven't been able to take this life for granted. Without a doubt, LeBonheur Children's Hospital saved my life as I battled through a difficult and rare liver disease. To this day, I still fight with an auto-immune disorder called Crohn's disease. Where some people would see weakness, I have found strength, patience, and hope. Everyone deserves an opportunity to live a fulfilling life of purpose and peace. With whatever time I have, with whatever strength I have, my life will be fulfilled if I can help provide that opportunity for others. That's why I'm running. Time is a precious gift, and I intend to make use of it."

In my time as an elected official, I’ve strived to bring honesty,  transparency, and accountability to local government. I believe elected leaders are the servants of the people. I have endeavored to protect your family, friends, and neighbors with both passion and measured judgment. But while other communities around the country have thrived, Shelby County has settled for less than the status quo. You and I both know that ... WE DESERVE BETTER.


I want to hear from you

Throughout this campaign and beyond, I want to hear from you. I want to hear your stories and ideas for how the county government can be a better partner for your family and community. I hope to see you on the campaign trail, but please reach out to me or the campaign through email. Stay tuned for future announcements about how you can support and get plugged in. Bonner and I are thrilled to have this opportunity to serve.
