Press Release

Washington, DC- Congressman Brendan Boyle (PA-D-13) issued the following statement today on the resignation announcement by Speaker of the House John Boehner:  
“I was surprised by today’s news that Speaker of the House John Boehner will be retiring next month.  Putting party politics aside, I want to thank the Speaker for his decades of service to our country.  The first time I met Speaker Boehner was at my inauguration in January of this year when he swore me into office.  He was gracious and kind to my entire family that morning. The second child of twelve, who grew up in a two bedroom house in Cincinnati, he truly is an example of the American Dream.  As a fellow Catholic I can understand why he would choose to announce his resignation after the incredibly humbling and inspiring meeting with His Holiness Pope Francis on Thursday.  I wish the Speaker all of the best in his future endeavors.”
