Catherine Borgia, the supervisor for the Town of Ossining, has announced plans to run for Westchester County Legislature in the fall.
Borgia, a Democrat, will be running in the 9th District, which represents Ossining, Croton, Briarcliff Manor and parts of Cortlandt. Bill Burton, the current representative, recently announced that he will not seek reelection.
Borgia has previously served as a trustee in the Village of Ossining and was chief of staff for Assemblywoman Sandy Galef. As supervisor, Borgia consolidated the town’s police department with Westchester County Police.
“There’s so much opportunity in government right now to find new ways of delivering services to our residents in ways that are cheaper and more effective,” Borgia said. “I am running for the County Board to help replicate the success that we have had in Ossining on a countywide basis.”
Burton expressed his support for Borgia’s candidacy.
“Catherine has the experience and proven track record of success to tackle the big issues facing Westchester County,” Burton said. “Her ability to work collaboratively for the common good makes Catherine a great asset to the 9th legislative district and to the entire county.”
