Caitlin Ogden

Otsego County Board of Representatives, District 3, NY

Caitlin is running for Otsego County Board of Representatives, District 3 which includes her town, Laurens, and the neighboring Town of Otego. She is running because she believes that active engagement from the whole board will be required to help her community navigate the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the economic impact it has had across the county.

Caitlin knows that it is vital to the growth of her community that work continue to expand access to cell service and high-speed internet so that no child is left behind in school because they can't do their homework. She also will work with her neighbors on strategies to diversify the local economy away from the tourism heavy model that not only crumbled under COVID, but that has consistently continued to drive up the cost of living in the community without providing a living wage, year-round employment.
