Dan Ryan – Candidate for Davidson Town Board
I am the son of a NYPD Detective and Registered Nurse. My wife Kelly and I have been married for 15 years and have two wonderful daughters. I graduated Binghamton State University with almost $40k in student loan debt. I got to work in the IT industry as the dot-com bubble was inflating and have managed to navigate a career that includes more successes than challenges. I’ve learned that collaboration is paramount to progress, and value must be unlocked in any transaction to realize success. All parties involved in a transaction, project, or relationship must understand value to deem it successful. I hope my candidacy will bring pragmatism and balance to our government.
I have introduced ideas to help our special town manage through realized and expected growth. I would like to see a comprehensive traffic plan instituted; economic diversity realized; our tree canopy preserved; and I would like to see Davidson prioritize bike and pedestrian safety.
Since moving to Davidson in 2014 I have served on the River Run POA, I am a board member at the Dilworth Center, and coach girls’ recreation soccer. Davidson is such a unique and historic place. I have enjoyed being involved in our community and hope to further serve this wonderful place we call home. At the forefront of my commissionership will be the interests of all citizens throughout Davidson.
I am an outsider to Davidson politics. I offer voters a fresh perspective on local government. I promise transparency and a bias toward action to solve our collective challenges. Davidson has grown 40% in just one census cycle. At this rate, we will be over 20k residents by 2030. Our government must take action to support the growth we have experienced while properly preparing for the future. I hope to gain your support!
