Ryan should have been named Jack, as in Jack-of-all-trades. He's been deeply involved in the cooperative homeland security program with NDACo and the League of Cities, but most county folks know him as the master of ceremonies for our annual conference and other events. Television was his first passion, as he spent 8 years as a sports anchor. He brought his media skills to the homeland security program, and now as manager of the Traffic Safety Outreach Program. Ryan and his wife, Lisa enjoy spending time with Jersey, the dog, and preparing their son to become a future Minnesota Twin and MLB Hall of Famer. Oh yes, Ryan wants you to remember one thing: BUCKLE UP!
