Daily Voice accepts signed and original letters to the editor up to 350 words. To send a letter, e-mail

It is unfortunate that Mr. & Mrs. Arrucci, personal friends of Catherine Borgia, wrote a letter to the Daily Voice editor containing false information.

Our nephew, Reed Outhouse, 1st Assistant Chief of Buchanan Engine, drives HIS issued Chief’s car, 2559A my husband’s “call” number as a Deputy Chief is NOT a physical “car” as alleged by the Arruccis.

A police officer, who retires from a line-of-duty injury, is not precluded from working. They are deemed, “unable to perform the duties of a police officer. Their allegation of impropriety is false. That being said he is a VOLUNTEER firefighter/EMT, unpaid.

The Arrucci’s insinuated that Borgia’s endorsement by Bob’s “co-workers.” was a personal slight. The PBA board safely endorsed only incumbents, not to be mistaken as the WILL of the membership. This caused Bob’s direct supervisors to write several letters of endorsement to show their support.

This is the second attempt at a personal smear campaign by Catherine Borgia via Carol and Ray Arrucci. Ray Arrucci posted in an Ossining Facebook group, a post that re-victimizes myself and my three children. I am shocked and horrified that my children’s former teacher and her husband would resort to an attack against our family to bolster Catherine Borgia’s campaign.

In short, I was a victim of domestic violence, when it turned to my children, Bob witnessed an event and I turned to him for help. He gave me the strength and support to attempt to leave for my children’s safety. The circumstances surrounding this is our personal business and has no place in politics. As Ms. Borgia’s personal business is, and never has been attacked by his campaign. Yet her team has made our tragedy the subject of a whisper campaign. Personal attacks has no place in politics.

My personal tragedy was revisited on Catherine Borgia’s Facebook wall Saturday by her “friend”. This was an ongoing attack that she allowed on her Facebook page that she controls. Ms. Borgia claims to be a champion for domestic violence, I see it as an attack on all Domestic Violence victims by a desperate campaign.
