Politics[edit | edit source]
Boyd served on Planning Commission before being elected at a Councilmember in 2009.
Boyd was a winner of "Golden Acorn Award" for outstanding member of Medina Elementary PTA, volunteer at Chinook Middle School, and was a member of Bellevue High School PTA. He was former vice president of Internet company that relocated from Jerusalem to Chicago. Boyd ran for city council in Medina in 2007 but lost.
In 2015, he supported impeaching the deputy mayor, whose title was stripped. In 2011, he seconded a motion to strip the title of deputy mayor from the holder of that position.
In 2015, he endorsed Claudia Balducci for King County Council.
In 2015, he supported a settlement for Roger Skinner, a City of Medina Deputy policeman fired in 2006, by Police Chief Jeff Chen.
Boyd has supported, and continues to support, gaining revenue for the City of Medina by installing a wireless facility in Fairweather Park, drawing opposition from citizens who argued successfully to the City of Medina Hearing Examiner that the wireless facility operator failed to place the wireless facility in a legally-defined, "least-intrusive" location per City of Medina code. The City of Medina appealed the Hearing Examiner's decision, which was upheld. Ultimately, the application was withdrawn, and the operator found a different location, close to other, less vocal neighbors, and put up a smaller tower, which serves commuters on 520 and brings no revenue to the City.
