Office: US House ( District: 2 )
Elected to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in 2008, Brendan was the first Democrat to represent Pennsylvania's 170th state legislative district, which includes parts of Montgomery County and Philadelphia. In 2010, he was joined in the state legislature by his brother, Representative Kevin J. Boyle, making them the first brothers to serve together in the Pennsylvania State House of Representatives.
In 2014, he was elected to Congress by the citizens of the 13th Congressional District, representing Northeast Philadelphia, part of North Philadelphia, and approximately half of Montgomery County, PA. Since first entering public service, Congressman Boyle has served as a champion for working and middle class families, in particular issues relating to social and economic justice. In 2018, the State of Pennsylvania re-drew congressional district lines across the Keystone State. As a result, the PA-13th District was consolidated within the borders of Philadelphia and renamed "PA-02". Congressman Boyle was subsequently re-elected as a Representative to Congress and now represents the newly redrawn PA-02 District.
Congressman Boyle served as an adjunct professor at Drexel University’s Graduate School of Public Policy. In 2011, he was named an Aspen Institute-Rodel Fellow.
