She never really left home. Rep. Denyc Boles graduated from Sprague High School. Although she earned a Bachelor's degree (Political Science and Sociology) from Seattle Pacific University and a Master's degree (Public Policy) from Regent University in Virginia, she returned home — literally — with her husband, a fellow Sprague grad, to raise their three children, the youngest of whom will graduate from Sprague next June.
She cut her political teeth rising up to chair the Marion County Republican Central Committee, following in the footsteps of her mother, in the early 2000s. She went on to work for Rep. Kevin Cameron during his ten-year tenure representing HD 19. She was one of three nominees to fulfill the term of Rep. Jodi Hack in 2017 and was the one selected by Marion County Commissioners. She then participated in the short 2018 session and, so, is now seeking election in her own right to represent the people of House District 19.
Since the Independent Party of Oregon had no declared candidate for this House District, Rep. Boles received the most write-in votes and secured the nomination of the party as well as winning the Republican primary. She faces Democrat Mike Ellison in the general election.
