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.
