SARATOGA SPRINGS – Saratoga Springs Mayor-Elect Joanne Yepsen announced that she is appointing Joseph J. Ogden to be her Deputy Mayor and Sarah Burger to be her City Attorney.


"I'm proud to announce Joseph J. Ogden as Deputy Mayor," said Yepsen. "Joe brings a great deal of professionalism to this position, and he has extensive experience with fiscal policy, budgeting, management, and government operations.  Joe will bring a fresh new perspective for City Hall that will benefit my administration as we move Saratoga Springs forward."


Joe Ogden, a graduate of Glens Falls High School, earned his B.A. in Economics from Siena College and a M.A. in international economics from the University at Albany. He is currently employed at the New York State Division of the Budget, where he has worked for almost ten years at various levels. In addition to everyday economic and fiscal matters, Mr. Ogden covered several different policy areas including public safety, homeland security, disaster relief, veteran’s affairs and Medicaid.


Sarah Burger is a Saratoga Springs High School graduate, and received her undergraduate degree from Drexel University in History and Politics. Her J. D. degree is from Villanova University. She has most recently practiced as a attorney for Gleason, Dunn, Walsh & O’Shea, P.C., in Albany. 


“Sarah’s passion for Saratoga, background in labor law and commitment to open, inclusive government make her the perfect addition to our team,” Yepsen said.


"I am excited and humbled to accept this position, and I look forward to working together with Mayor-Elect Yepsen to make Saratoga Springs an even better place to raise a family" said Ogden.



Joe and his wife Lisa built a home on the West Side of Saratoga Springs in 2012 and are expecting their first child in May.
