Bio

Ryan Moen has called Victoria home for the past 15 years. He spent a year abroad in Northern Australia, where he learned how to sail. A quick study and insatiable love for the water saw Ryan rise through the ranks to become both a skipper and yachting instructor. Despite the close friends made and allure of the islands of the great barrier reef, it still wasn’t home. After returning to Victoria, Ryan enrolled in our local West Coast College of Massage Therapy. Ryan put himself through school. Five years later, his experience has allowed him to offer a spectrum of services from palliative care for long term patients, to seeing through full term pregnancies. Ryan has had a unique opportunity to witness the earnest voice of Victoria. However, as he has seen his roots with the community grow, many friends and family have reluctantly had to pack their bags due to the cost of living. At 29 years of age, Ryan Moen put his name in as your city council to stop this exodus- not just with good intentions, but with a plan. The creation of ryanmoen.com launched a platform to inform Victorians of their city’s issues. Ryan Moen for city council has become more than a campaign for a seat on council; it is an opportunity to let the people of Victoria become informed of their programs and taxes, see the viable options, and decide based on the facts who they will chose to represent them for the next 4 years come November 15. Ryan Moen has called Victoria home for the past 15 years and plans to do so for at least another 15 more.

 

Why should I vote for you?

I offer a pragmatic and balanced approach to city council. As highlighted on the issues page of ryanmoen.com, I deliver facts to the public, allowing us to be active members in decision making. I want to be the first councillor you contact with your questions that need answering.

 

Your main goal if elected?

Invest in our aging infrastructure. Retain value for property owners and tax payers. We need to see our stable IT, legal, banking and government industries stay in Victoria by assuring them that there are long-term decisions being made. Our investments of today should not be the burden of tomorrow.
