Serving in the Pennsylvania legislature since 2009, Brendan Boyle has been a leading environmental advocate and a vocal proponent of tackling climate change. He earned a perfect 100% on the 2013-2014 Pennsylvania Environmental Scorecard and was a member of the “Green Dog” Caucus, a group of legislators that prioritizes environmental issues. Boyle was the first person in his family to attend college and the first Democrat elected to represent his state legislative district.
Boyle views environmental issues as one of the top priorities that he will work on in Congress. He will work for comprehensive solutions to address climate change, expand clean energy, and protect our natural resources. Boyle knows that sound environmental policies go hand in hand with a strong economy and he understands the economic risks climate change poses.
Boyle fills the seat held by Representative Allyson Schwartz, who received a lifetime score of 94% on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard through 2013.
In his own words:
“Taking serious strides toward a clean energy future, mitigating our impact on our environment and the effects of climate change must be a top priority for this generation of policymakers. The motivation to preserve and protect the world we live in must be a moral and economic imperative, as our children and our grandchildren will be the ones to live with the consequences of our actions.”
