The West University Place City Council voted to appoint Kevin Boyle, Sr. to fill the vacancy caused by former Councilmember and Mayor Pro Tem, Wayne Franklin’s resignation at the end of August.
The Council voted unanimously to appoint Boyle, who is active both in the City of West U and the greater community.
“We are pleased to have Kevin join us on the Council,” said Mayor Susan Sample. “His serving on the boards of various organizations, including the West University Parks & Recreation Board, and passion for community service make him a natural choice for Councilman. “
Boyle was sworn in after the November 5 City Council meeting, and will officially attend his first meeting as Councilman on November 12. He will complete the rest of Franklin’s term, which ends in June.
Councilmember Boyle brings a strong background in Finance, having served as Chief Financial Officer for three multimillion-dollar Houston Companies in the medical and petrochemical sectors. He holds a Bachelor’s of Science degree from Carnegie Mellon University, where he graduated with honors, and first in his Department, and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Pennsylvania Law School.
