Ryan O’Larey for Ferndale City Council Position 5

My wife, two sons, and I all love living in Ferndale. Recently my wife’s parents moved here, so we now have three generations of firmly planted Ferndale roots. I would be thrilled to represent you on the City Council and devote myself to making Ferndale even better.

I believe Ferndale can be a city that encourages growth and maintains our small-town feel; supports good paying industry jobs and values the environment; revitalizes infrastructure and preserves history; respects individuals and strives for the common good. To achieve this, I am committed to the post-partisanship ideals of using data and facts instead of emotions, finding allies instead of enemies, and advancing good ideas regardless of their origin.

I have experience responsibly managing budgets on par with Ferndale’s, finding unique and cost-effective solutions to complex problems, and cutting waste. My skill set and your voice are needed on the Council. I’d be honored to have your vote.

Have you ever found yourself frustrated or confused by a city decision?

City Council actions have major impacts on our community. Yet participating in our government isn’t always easy. I commit to more than just being accessible; I will actively seek out your input because I firmly believe your voice adds value.

If like many Ferndale residents you are too busy with kids, your job, your health, or other activities to attend Council and Committee Meetings, the city in missing out on your ideas and input.

I commit to giving you a chance to participate in the City Council process.

How will I seek out your voice?

I propose a 3-step process:


Before a Council meeting, I will send you:

A summary of what is being voted on, my planned vote and my rationale for it, and a neutral view of the pros/cons of the topic.


At the end of each summary, there will be a link to MAKE YOURSELF HEARD. It is entirely up to you if you’d like to participate.

From your phone or computer, YOU will tell me if you’d like for me to vote “Yes” or “No.”

Simply sign up to participate at the bottom of this site and your voice will be heard.


I commit to reaching out to each and every constituent who is interested in participating.

This will ensure that I am listening to the WILL OF THE PEOPLE of Ferndale. You can be confident that your voice is heard.
