Catherine Borgia represents Legislative District 9 on the Westchester County Board of Legislators, which encompasses Ossining, Briarcliff, Croton,and  parts of Cortlandt and the City of Peekskill. She currently serves as the Chair of the Budget and Appropriations Committee for the BOL, and is a member of the following committees: Appointments, Energy, Health & Environment, Intergovernmental Services, Legislation, and Labor and Housing. Additionally, Borgia co-chairs the Families Task Force, the largest and most active County task force.


She previously served as the Board’s Majority Leader from 2014-2017. Under her leadership, the Democratic Caucus sponsored several pieces of legislation to help move Westchester forward. The caucuses worked across the aisle to ensure that the budgetary and service goals of Westchester County were met under adverse political and budgetary circumstances.

 

In January 2018, Borgia re-introduced the county’s most progressive legislative agenda which included legislation that she had worked on for the Immigrant Protection Act, Employee Earned Paid Sick Leave, Wage History Discrimination Bill (better known as salary history ban), and Co-Op Disclosure Bill.


Prior to service on the Board of Legislators, she served two terms as Supervisor of the Town of Ossining. During her tenure, in addition to providing two tax cuts to all Ossining property owners, she restored the Town to financial health in the worst economic climate since the Great Depression by reducing the budget by 18.5%, increasing the Town’s fund balance, and using innovative management practices. By working with Village of Ossining and New York State, she consolidated the Town and Village courts into one.


Before becoming Town Supervisor, Borgia served four years on the Ossining Village Board. She worked for seven years as Chief of Staff to NYS Assemblywoman Sandy Galef. In addition to her legislative role, Catherine is a licensed real estate broker, and does marketing and communications consulting for businesses and nonprofits. A long-time community volunteer, Borgia co-founded the Ossining Microfund, and is a member of the Teatown Advisory Board.

 

Borgia has an MBA from NYU-Stern School of Business and a BA from Binghamton University (SUNY). She lives in Ossining with her two daughters, and one rambunctious dog. Learn more at www.CatherineBorgia.com or stay connected on Facebook.com/LegCatherineBorgia
