Borst was elected as a Jacksonian to the Twenty-first Congress (March 4, 1829 – March 3, 1831). He served as a member of the committee appointed by the county board of supervisors to oversee the building of the first county almshouse in 1838. He died in Middleburg, New York, November 14, 1848. He was interred in the family burying ground on his estate, "The Hook," in Schoharie County.
At least three of Borst's children (Addison, John B., and Peter Bouck Borst) moved from New York to Page County, Virginia in years prior to the American Civil War. Addison and John served in the 10th Virginia Infantry, while Peter (23 June 1826 – 24 April 1882) represented the county in the 1861 Virginia Convention, voting both times in favor of secession.
