Jeff Ryan

Chairman, Jeff Ryan of the Birdseye Area

Jeff Ryan was in resource professional positions with private and state entities for over 40 years, the last 20 years doing statewide river/stream permitting for DEQ.  

In Jeff’s words: “I’m on the board to give a little back to this wonderful state that’s given so much to me and my family.  I’ve had the opportunity to take part in hundreds of hours of training related to river/stream/wetland resources.  I’ve reviewed thousands of different designs related to those resource projects and visited a majority of the sties.  Sharing that experience with folks to help them do resource friendly projects and to complement our 310 permitting process is my main way of ‘giving back’.”

Jeff has been on the board of supervisors since he was appointed in 2014 and he was elected in 2018.  He represents the Birdseye area of the county.
