In what will be the first formal City Council announcement of the campaign year, neighborhood activist and nurse practitioner Patrick Boyle will announce his candidacy for the 2rd District Duluth City Council seat currently held by outgoing councilor Greg Gilbert. Boyle will announce his candidacy on Thursday, March 12 at 11:00 A.M. at the Mt. Royal Branch Library.
“We almost lost the Mt. Royal Library because of the hard financial times,” explained Boyle. “Though we face difficult times in our city, as we do in our nation, I am determined that we not lose the community assets that bind us together, give our children opportunities, and make Duluth unique.”

The son of former Wisconsin state assemblyman Frank Boyle, the 35 year old Patrick Boyle grew up just outside Superior. “In my family, public service was a way of life,” he stated. “I’ve tried hard to live up to that ideal.” Boyle is a nurse practitioner with the Fond Du Lac Band of Ojibwe and lives with his wife Jennifer and daughter Mary in the Congdon neighborhood of Duluth’s second district. A full biography and formal statement will be provided at the announcement.
