Meet Catherine Borgia

Catherine Borgia has represented Legislative District 9 on the Westchester County Board of Legislators, which encompasses Ossining, Briarcliff, Croton, and parts of Cortlandt and Peekskill, since 2012. 


She currently serves as Chair of the Board’s Budget & Appropriations Committee, where she works to manage a $1.9 billion budget that ensures Westchester County delivers top-notch public services in a cost-effective manner. 


Catherine 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, including the Immigrant Protection Act, the Salary History Ban, Earned Sick Leave, the Children's Product Safety Act, the Fracking Waste Ban, and Tax Credits for Renewable Energy Homes.

During that period, the Caucus worked across the aisle to ensure that the budgetary and service goals of Westchester County were met under adverse political and budgetary circumstances.


In the 2017 election cycle, Catherine also Chaired and coordinated the Westchester Democratic Majority Action Committee, which successfully elected a 13-seat Democratic supermajority to the Board of Legislators.


 Prior to her election to the County Board of Legislators, Catherine served two terms as the Town Supervisor of Ossining, restoring the Town to financial health in the worst economic climate since the Great Depression, increasing the Town’s fund balance, and using shared services to achieve two successive property tax cuts.


She served for four years on the Ossining Village Board, and for seven years was Chief of Staff to New York State Assemblywoman Sandy Galef. She co-owned two successful small businesses and is currently a Licensed Real Estate Salesperson and corporate trainer.


A long-time community volunteer, Catherine co-founded the Ossining Micro fund and served on the board of directors of the Rotary Club of Ossining, the Junior League of Northern Westchester, Ossining Communities That Care, and the Teatown Advisory Board. 


Catherine has an MBA from NYU-Stern School of Business and a BA from Binghamton University (SUNY). Catherine lives in Croton and is the proud mom of two daughters and one rambunctious dog.
