On August 15, the ACCF hosted a webinar with Rep. Brendan Boyle (D-PA), Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee and the Co-chair of both the Blue Collar and European (EU) Caucuses.
Rep. Boyle is now serving his fifth term in Pennsylvania’s Second District. The first in his family to attend college, he attended the University of Notre Dame and later graduated from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government with a master’s degree in Public Policy.
Rep. Boyle was elected to the Pennsylvania state legislature in 2008, becoming the first Democrat to ever represent his legislative district. Two years later his brother Kevin was also elected to the state legislature, making them the first brothers to serve together in the state House.
In 2014, Rep. Boyle pulled off a major upset win over three better funded rivals to be elected to Congress. He has also been an adjunct professor at Drexel’s University’s Graduate School of Public Policy and an Aspen Institute-Rodell Fellow.
