Looks like another Boyle is taking a shot at the state House of Represenatives.
Kevin Boyle, younger brother of state Rep. Brendan Boyle, is leaving his job in City Council to make a Democratic run for the 172nd District in Northeast Philadelphia, a seat currently held by Republican John Perzel.
“The people of the northeast deserve a state Representative who’s not on his way to jail,” Boyle said. Today is his last day working in Council and he plans to formally declare his plans to run for the seat over the weekend.
Perzel, who has held the seat since 1979, is charged with using state money for political purposes as part of a state attorney general probe of the General Assembly known as “bonsugate.”
