Boyle is one of the most fiscally conservative members of the New York State Legislature, consistently voting and advocating for reduced government spending in Albany. His primary focus has been to lower the tax burden on all New Yorkers, particularly focusing on lowering school property taxes. As a member of the Assembly Committee on Codes, Boyle has also led in efforts to enhance New York State’s use of forensic technology such as DNA to both convict the guilty and exonerate the innocent.
Boyle received his undergraduate degree in Political Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill after earlier attending SUNY at Geneseo. He also earned a Masters Degree in Public Administration from SUNY at Albany as well as a law degree from Albany Law School.
Boyle is a founding partner in the law firm of Steinberg & Boyle, LLP in East Islip. Earlier in his career, he had served as a senior congressional aide in Washington D.C. for over five years. This included service as Administrative Assistant (AA) to former Congressman Rick Lazio. Active in his community, Boyle is a member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians and the Sierra Club, as well as an active volunteer firefighter and Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) with the Great River Fire Department.
Boyle and his wife, Victoria Ryan, reside in Bay Shore.
