Amanda Barge is a ﬁrst-term Monroe County Commissioner. After winning the 2016 Democratic primary, she went on to win in last November’s general election despite the Republican Party’s statewide sweep. A licensed, practicing social worker and therapist, she’s already made news in her leadership roles in Rise to Run, a national eﬀort to get more women on the ballot, and in the local Opioid Summit. Barge ﬁnds social work and serving on the county commission to be similar jobs. She joins Michael Glab on this week’s edition of Big Talk.
