My name is Chad Ryan and I hope to be your next 2nd district common councilor. I am a lifelong resident of Tipperary Hill in Syracuse, New York and a graduate of Thomas J. Corcoran High School and SUNY Canton. At age 28, I am a third generation funeral director for the Edward J. Ryan and Son Funeral Home, a local and family owned business. This is my first time running for an elected position, although community initiatives have always been a large part of my life. District Two is my home and I, along with its citizens, take a great deal of pride in this district and this city. I am running for this position in order to restore that pride in our community, by not only facing the biggest issues this district has, but doing so with the citizens’ best interests at heart.
