My name is Nick Ryan; and I'm running as a member of the Libertarian Party for the office of State Representative - Iowa House District 79. Thanks for stopping by to learn more about me and my candidacy.
I grew up in New Sharon where I lived until I was 17. Shortly after my 17th birthday I moved to the Twin Cities to attend Brown College for radio broadcasting. Since college I've held entry level and management positions in the military, private security and public safety industry; as well as sales and marketing management positions with multi-million dollar firms.
In addition to my professional endeavors, for the past several years I’ve been moonlighting as a country music artist. I’ve recorded in Nashville and played shows all over Iowa including as a support act for Sundance Head (winner of NBC’s The Voice), Granger Smith, Rascal Flatts and Lee Ann Womack. Pursuing my passion for Country music has afforded me a real opportunity to connect with people all over the state, hear their stories and understand what's important to them.
I'm now 32 years old, married to my amazing wife, Brittany and I have a 6 year old stepdaughter named Sophia. We live in Beacon with our dog, Bubba and cat Coco.
I decided to run for State Representative because I, along with so many of you that I've visited with over the last few years are deeply concerned about the direction our Country is headed, and the impact that charting such a course is having at the state and local levels of government.
With each passing day, our Constitutionally protected rights continue to erode, while government continues to grow and expand in size, scope and cost. This threat to our Liberty and wallets is propped up by a failed and corrupted two-party political circus. We can no longer afford to stand idly by, while the two establishment parties take turns hammering the nails into our coffins.
We must take action. We must do something different. We must send a clear message to
Des Moines AND Washington D.C. that the party is over!
Please join me and the Libertarian Party in starting a REAL political revolution right here in Iowa! By uniting under the banner of Liberty, together, we can put an end to corporate cronyism at all levels of government, shrink the size and scope of government while reducing taxes by the amount saved, stop eminent domain abuse, stop incarcerating people for petty marijuana offenses and finally give the cannabis industry the same regulatory headroom in Iowa as alcoholic beverages.
I sincerely hope you will join me in this fight for Freedom by registering to vote as a Libertarian, volunteering with my campaign team, making a contribution - and most importantly... showing up at your designated polling place on Tuesday, November 6th and electing me as your next State Representative.
Thanks so much for visiting,
