Congressman Brendan F. Boyle (PA-02) Congressman Brendan F. Boyle was born and raised in the city of Philadelphia. The son of an immigrant, Congressman Boyle's father was a janitor for SEPTA and mother a school crossing guard. 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. He 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, Congressman Boyle pulled off an upset win over three better funded rivals to be elected to Congress. For two terms, he served on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Now in his fourth term, Congressman Boyle represents the 2nd Pennsylvania congressional district, which includes all of Northeast Philadelphia and parts of North Philadelphia east of Broad Street, as well as portions of Philadelphia's River Wards. He currently serves on the powerful House Ways and Means Committee and the House Committee on the Budget. He is the founder and co-chair of the "Blue Collar Caucus" which advocates for working families by addressing wage stagnation, job insecurity, and the future of work.
