A third generation native of Saratoga County, Don Boyajian serves as a municipal and environmental attorney in Upstate New York. He currently lives in Cambridge, near his favorite trout stream.
Don’s grandfather came to America seeking opportunity, and without much, he bought a farm in Saratoga County, where he traded livestock for the area’s dairy farms. Don’s upbringing was rooted in working outside, and early on he developed a passion for managing our natural resources.
Don earned a degree in Environmental Geography and Biology from Colgate University, with high honors, where his work focused on housing affordability in the Adirondacks and the economic impacts of invasive species in Upstate New York.
Determined to make an impact on federal policy, Don landed a job with Congressman Mike McMahon (NY-13). He worked his way up to lead on agriculture, natural resources, and energy policy. It was there that Don recognized the impact that major corporations had on every type of federal policy, and he became motivated to get results for people by holding big corporations accountable.
