Representative James Boyle
  Representing: Scarborough (Part)/ Gorham (Part)
District #27

Rep. Jim Boyle is serving his first term in the Maine House of Representatives and previously served two years in the Maine State Senate.

Boyle grew up loving the Maine outdoors, which is why he decided to become a forester and wetland scientist. After graduating from the University of Maine in 1981 with a degree in Forest Management, Boyle began his career as a forester in the northern Maine woods before opening his first environmental consulting company in 1996. Over the years, he has owned several small businesses aimed at protecting the environment. Today, Rep. Boyle owns and operates Environmental Permitting and Inspection, LLC.

He currently sits on the Board of Directors of the Efficiency Maine Trust and has served on the Board of the Presumpscot Regional Land Trust and as President of the Maine Association of Wetland Scientists.

He and his wife, Sue, live in Gorham. Their four children and four grandchildren all live in Maine.
