Ashley Ryan was elected at the National Committeewoman from Maine in May 2012. As a third-generation Republican, Ashley’s family is rooted in the wonderful traditions of the Maine Republican Party. Her grandmother, Nancy Ryan, a long-time activist with the Maine GOP, imparted Ashley with a sense of tradition and respect. Her father, Lewis Ryan, served in the Maine Army Reserves and fought for our country in Operation Desert Storm. He taught Ashley a sense of duty and what it means to serve a cause greater than yourself.
