Boyle doesn't miss early morning votes

Former Rep. Frank Boyle came down to Green Bay to see some of the people he misses from his days in the Legislature -- or as he calls them, the "crazy renegades."

As for the actual legislative process, however, the longtime Superior Democrat, who left the Legislature in January, doesn't miss the 5 a.m. votes on the budget.

"I didn't miss that at all," Boyle said. "It shouldn't be that way."

Boyle has otherwise been enjoying what he called "an incredibly positive retirement."

He and his wife joined the Sierra Club on a three-month journey through the remote mountains of New Mexico, and he has since taken up working on his cabin and pontoon boat.

He's also serving as a "messenger boy" for his son, who's running for a seat on the Duluth City Council, and has stayed involved in local politics, from taking phone calls from the Assembly floor to hosting an event for the Douglas County Dems later this month at his home.

"If need be, I'll step forward," Boyle added. "I'll go to a podium any time."
