Mr. Boyle previously served in the New York State Senate as the Director of its Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committee and Deputy Chief of Staff for the Third Senate District.

He also worked together with veterans’ groups to protect the governmental services they deserve. In addition, he led a team of governmental professionals who brought services to Long Island communities and worked with our counties, towns, villages and nonprofits to help them better serve their various constituents.
Prior to serving in the state Senate, Mr. Boyle served as the Executive Assistant to the Supervisor of the Town of Islip. There, he worked with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the U.S. Coast Guard, the American Red Cross and many other agencies and non-governmental organizations during Superstorm Sandy and the recovery period that followed.
