Burgundy Magoon

Burgundy is joining Brown and Weinraub from the NYS Assembly Ways and Means Committee, where she oversaw a portfolio that included the analysis of the $222.2 billion NYS Financial Plan, NYS Capital Program and Debt Service, Public Authorities, Procurement, Public Safety and Victims Services. 

In this role, Burgundy evaluated all proposed policy related to debt and reviewed projects brought before the Public Authorities Control Board (PACB) for approval. Projects are presented to PACB by 11 statewide Public Authorities including the Empire State Development Corporation, Dormitory Authority, and Housing Finance Agency. This provided Burgundy insight into the operations and decision making of public authorities that will be beneficial to clients seeking funding.

At the Assembly Burgundy also worked on Transportation and Elections issues. This included negotiating major Transportation projects and policies with the Senate and Governor’s office, including Congestion Pricing, the MTA and DOT Capital Programs, and local transit funding. Burgundy also negotiated funding to support the State and County Boards of Elections in implementing Election reforms. 

Burgundy began her career working in State Relations at the American Red Cross. 

She received her undergraduate degree in Government from St. Lawrence University and her Master’s in Public Administration from Rockefeller College at SUNY Albany.
