HD 30 Melinda Johnson Ryan

Democratic challenger Melinda Johnson Ryan, Sapulpa, is working hard to earn the approval of voters in House District 30 and it's likely that she will win this open seat.

A local attorney, Ryan is active in the district and is seeking to be a true representative of the people who live in District 30. She expects to focus on "getting things done rather than just partisan politics."

I heard Melinda speak in Sapulpa earlier in the season and was impressed by her wit, her intelligence, and her ability to balance family, career and civic responsibilities.

Melinda and husband Captain Scott Ryan have three children: Max, Chloe and Nick.

Captain Ryan was recently awarded The Bronze Star Medal for exceptionally meritorious service and dedication to duty during combat operations in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
During his deployment, Ryan also received the Iraqi Campaign Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Medal, the Armed Forces Reserve Medal with M Device, the National Defense Medal and the overseas service ribbon.
