Meet Amy Galey
Amy grew up in Union Ridge, here in Alamance County. Her parents are Dr. Sam and Connie Scott. She graduated from Western Alamance High School, UNC Chapel Hill, and the University of North Carolina School of Law. She is licensed to practice law in North Carolina, South Carolina, and the District of Columbia.
Concerned about the growth in the region, Amy ran for Alamance County Commissioner and was elected in 2016. She was Chair of the Alamance County Board of Commissioners from 2017-2020.
In her first term as a North Carolina Senator, Amy helped pass the Dignity for Incarcerated Women Act, which made sure that incarcerated women in labor would not be shackled or chained during delivery. Also, the Act provided for parenting classes, nutrition, and other important health considerations for pregnant incarcerated women.
Amy also secured critical funding for the district in the 2021-2022 budget, including tens of millions of dollars. Some of the appropriations included $15M for an EMS facility for Alamance County, $15.8M for water and sewer projects for Burlington, $800,000 for volunteer fire departments, $541,447 for the Town of Green Level, $2M for the Snow Camp Fire Department, $21M for a water treatment facility in Mebane, $500,000 for water and sewer improvements for Haw River, and $10M for water treatment in Graham.
Amy lives in Union Ridge, on the farm that formerly belonged to her grandparents, with her husband, Fred. They have three children, two dogs, and three cats.
