Rep. Denyc Boles can boast a Republican Party pedigree unmatched by any other. Her mother, the late Cheryl Mesdag was treasurer and later chaired the Marion County Republican Central Committee in the 1990s. Denyc followed in her mother's footsteps to chair the party in the early 00s. For much of Kevin Cameron's legislative stint Denyc served as his office manager, further whetting her appetite to serve in public office. When Rep. Jodi Hack recently opted to leave the legislature following the 2017 long session, Denyc was selected by the Marion County Commissioners over two other candidates to serve the remainder of the term.
Denyc is a native of Salem and District 19, living in the home in which she grew up now with her husband. She graduated from Sprague High School, earned a Bachelor's degree in political science and sociology at Seattle Pacific University and a Master's degree in public policy at Regent University in Virginia.
Upon being sworn in as a new legislator for the 79th Legislative Assembly, Rep. Boles was appointed to serve on three House committees: Business & Labor; Healthcare; Early Childhood & Family Support Systems.
