Ryan Ferrie

A candidate for State Senator, Legislative District 44 in the 2010 Washington Primary Election

Party: Republican

On this race:

Elected Experience: First time candidate.

Other Professional Experience: Business owner in Snohomish County, A&R Insurance and Financial Services, LLC. Held high level leadership positions in Fortune 500 companies where I was solely responsible for budget and performance.

Education: University of Washington-Degree in History.

Community Service: I am an active volunteer in our children's school and extracurricular activities, including Watch Dogs, Cub Scouts and sports clubs.

Statement: Thank you for considering me for your new State Senator in the 44th.  I am honored to represent the people of the 44th Legislative District and am proud to say I have been endorsed by the Snohomish County Republican Party as well as countless individuals and businesses.

I am running as a first time candidate because I am concerned with the direction our great state is heading.  Infighting and legislative indecision have left our state in dire financial straights.  We need a fresh start in Olympia to correct the troubled path we are on.  I take a common sense approach to problem solving and have the necessary tools to get the job done.

As a husband and father I realize we simply must do a better job in our education system.  I will work tirelessly to help balance the education needs of our students with the resources available to us.

As a successful business owner here in Snohomish County I know how difficult our current leadership has made it to run a business in Washington State.  I will be the champion this state needs to help create pro business policies and help bring real jobs back to our communities.
