Megan is ready to bring stability to the budget crisis. Despite increasing taxes, Monroe County currently ranks at the top of the list for fiscal stress. This heavily impacts families in Monroe County, like those with children with disabilities who look to the County for early intervention services.
Megan will fight for a budget that works for the community by prioritizing the people and eliminating corruption. She will push for a budget that maintains County assets and implements smart hiring practices for heads of departments. Stabilizing the financial situation will allow the County to address the needs of the community.
Establishing priorities, making plans, and taking action is not new to Megan. She does this daily in her work as an IT manager at Frontier and as a CEO for her own business, Kharma Software. She has the drive and know-how to turn this budget around.
The opioid epidemic is impacting every community in America, Webster included. Megan will collaborate across party and town line lines to find resources and support for families in the community. She will build on the work she has done as a community member to bring Narcan training to Webster. Megan planned the first two Webster trainings in 2017 and 2018 and the trainings have continued, now organized by Webster Health and Education Network (WHEN).
As a County Legislator, Megan will be able to do more to address the opioid crisis. She will take a proactive approach to the epidemic by offering community outreach and family support. Every single community in Monroe County has lost someone from an opioid overdose, and in 2017 there were 212 deaths across Monroe County. It is time the County Legislation works together to provide leadership in a time of need. Megan has demonstrated her ability to lead and take action even as a private citizen, and will continue to do so as your County Legislator.
Each day on her way to work, Megan drives past empty Xerox buildings. It’s a reminder of what Monroe County has lost in recent years and of the good jobs no longer available to our community. We need to bring good jobs to Monroe County.
Green jobs are projected to be have some of the fastest employment growth in the country over the next ten years. Given Monroe County's strong technology and science background with Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and University of Rochester (U of R), we are well-positioned to be a leader in this area. Megan will ensure the County makes sustainable and cost-effective decisions while promoting the creation of green jobs.
