Early life and education
Borges grew up in Barrington, Rhode Island, and earned a B.A. in political science from The Ohio State University in 1994. He works as government relations director for the law firm Roetzel & Andress.
Borges was embroiled in pay-to-play scandal in 2004 when Borges was chief of staff to former Republican state Treasurer Joe Deters. Borges plead "guilty in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court to a misdemeanor count of unauthorized use of a public office for giving preferential treatment to certain brokers who contributed to Deters' re-election campaign." He paid $1,000 in fines and the record was later expunged.
