megAs a partner at Table Rock, Megan was instrumental in bringing the $172 MM water and wastewater public-private partnership in Rialto, California to financial close, including the capital raise, investor due diligence, PLA and employee transition, environmental and engineering reports facilitation, public partner and community relationships, and other conditions precedent. Megan is now a lead on both the ongoing asset management of the Rialto concession including development of the $25MM wastewater treatment plant overhaul, and for Table Rock’s 100-City tour to next screened cities positioned to benefit from the model. Previous to Table Rock, Megan founded the MMOB (Mainstreet Moms Organize or Bust), a 50,000 member 50-state political action committee. At the MMOB she led grassroots organizing and community outreach to eleven city councils and the Marin Board of Supervisors getting the votes necessary to launch California’s first independent green energy agency, the Marin Energy Authority CCA (Community Choice Aggregation). Megan was also Field Director for the win against Prop 16, PG&E’s $55MM statewide ballot initiative aimed at defeating Marin’s CCA. She organized successfully against PG&E’s $5.5MM countywide campaign to stop CCA, and helped win victories for CCA at the CPUC. She then cofounded LEAN Energy, a national organization furthering the development of CCA around the country, before joining Table Rock. Previously at the MMOB, Megan led national, state and local grassroots organizing on a range of initiatives, including peer-to-peer voter registration innovations in 17 swing states proven in a Yale study to be 3.8x as effective as conventional; successful election integrity litigations in Florida and California through pollworker recruitment and training; and state-by-state legislation drafting and roll-out. Megan describes Table Rock as “private equity on a mission,” and sees private capital and expertise as critical to addressing the country’s severe infrastructure gap. She is committed to projects that are at once cost-effective, CO2 reducing, creditworthy, adaptive to changing water and energy conditions, and that build jobs toward a restored middle class. She enjoys resolving some of the hardest issues faced by local government, through creative and transparent public-private infrastructure. Megan is on the Board of the Southwest Megaregion Alliance, having previously served on the Boards of the Bolinas Community Land Trust for affordable housing, of EnergyNext, and of Strategic Energy Innovations. She received her B.A. from Yale University.
