What I'm About

Why I'm Running

My name is Meagan McCarty.

I’m a mother of two amazing children in our public schools, proud Port Washington resident, and candidate for County Legislature.

Many of you may know me from my charitable work here in Port Washington, my involvement in local small business, or from my jogs around the neighborhood.

Many people are lucky enough to be born on Long Island. However, transplants like me can proudly say we chose it. In my past work with State Senator Elaine Philips and Councilwoman Dina De Georgio, I have gained the unique perspective of someone who has worked for local government for the very place they live. I know what is important to the people of our district and am committed to helping our children grow up with good schools, clean beaches, safe streets, and opportunity to advance in life.

I want my kids to be able to afford to build a life here. To stay in the communities they were raised in and raise families of their own some day.

I want to take the time to listen to your voices and learn what the people living in our neighborhoods have to say about them. I want to hear you and help you so that together we can keep the north shore wonderful for generations to come.

Thank you for taking this journey with me. More than anything, I look forward to meeting you on the campaign trail and working together for the people.
