My Top 3 Priorities

  • AFFORDABLE & WORKFORCE HOUSING: Ryan has spent his career making the dream of a home a reality for Napa County residents. Ryan has worked to provide home of all types to local residents: affordable, workforce, senior, single-family and multi-family.
  • TRANSPORTATION: Ryan is a lifelong resident who's seen traffic congestion and road conditions worsen, with little progress on public transportation or alternative forms of transportation. Ryan's committed to addressing these issues in the years ahead
  • PLANNING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE: Ryan has witnessed the continued growth of the wine industry, and wants to plan for a sustainable future by balancing the tourism-based economy with the needs to care for our own residents and invest in local residents.

Biography

Ryan Gregory is a small business owner, father, community leader and Napa native who has dedicated much of his life towards the betterment of our community.

Ryan completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. While attending Cal Poly, he found his passion for community service, volunteering at a San Luis Obispo homeless shelter, working his way up to become the Program Manager for the shelter and through hard work, graduating college debt-free, with a small savings account. The experiences he gained during college led to a continued community involvement back at home in Napa, something that continues to this day.

As the Vice President of RSA+ in downtown Napa, Ryan has been a leader in providing homes for people across our community through both non-profit and for-profit residential housing projects, along with various other developments. His success has been recognized by other locally-owned Napa businesses and in 2014, Ryan’s business, RSA+, received the Napa Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business of the Year Award.

Ryan’s extensive community involvement includes service as the former Board Chair for the Napa Chamber of Commerce and Community Action Napa Valley. He has also served as President of Leadership Napa Valley, the Napa Engineers Society and the Kiwanis Club of Napa. Ryan was also actively involved as a member of the Joint City-County Affordable Housing Taskforce, the Airport Industrial Area Blue Ribbon Committee, the City of Napa Housing Element Update Committee, Napa County Transportation and Planning Agency’s (NCTPA) Highway 29 Citizens Advisory Committee, and the Downtown Napa Specific Plan Steering Committee. 

Ryan continues to demonstrate his commitment to Napa County through service as a Board Director for the Boys & Girls Club of Napa Valley and the Downtown Napa Property & Business Improvement District. He is also an appointed member of the City of Napa’s Civil Service Commission, has been the Chair of the Napa Chamber of Commerce’s Legislative Action Committee for the past six years, is President of the Brother Can You Spare a Dime Community Baseball Outings, and is the Friday Beverage Chair for the Napa Valley Wine Auction. In addition, Ryan has served on the Vine Trail Engineering Committee since its inception.

With his engineering background, community service experience and connection to local businesses, Ryan will bring a fresh perspective and new leadership to the Board of Supervisors, laying a solid foundation for a brighter, more promising future for Napa County.
