Florida Gov. Rick Scott recently named Megan Fay as his new director of policy.
Fay, former deputy director of legislative affairs, is taking over the position vacated by Jeff Woodburn, who has accepted an appointment as executive director of the Florida Constitution Revision Commission, Scott's office said in a March 3 release.
“Each and every day we have to fight to ensure a strong future for Florida so that our state is the best place for families for generations to come,” Scott said in the release. “Since joining my team in 2013, Megan has displayed the outstanding leadership needed to strategically guide policy in our state. I look forward to her continuing to serve the families of Florida in this new role.”
Fay previously served the Governor’s Office in several capacities including chief analyst in the Office of Policy and Budget and as deputy director of Cabinet Affairs. Prior to that, she was assistant general counsel for the Florida Real Estate Commission, the release said. She is a graduate of University of Florida’s Warrington College of Business and earned a law degree from the Florida State University College of Law.
