About Terry

Terry (Terence) Ryan, a public servant and an engineer, is a strong advocate and proven collaborator with a track record of success in both the public and private sectors. He is running as a Democrat for U.S. Congress for Massachusetts' 3rd Congressional District.

At his core Terry is a problem solver. From his experience in the high-tech industry to his role as a public servant, he has earned a reputation as a collaborator with the temperament and skills to bring people together and work tirelessly to reach a conclusion that works for all parties involved.

The son of an engineer and a public-school teacher, Terry was raised by hardworking middle-class parents in Lowell who instilled in him an incredible work ethic, as well as a commitment to public service and giving back. He has lived those values his entire life.

A graduate of Central Catholic High School, he earned his B.S. in Engineering from Wentworth Institute of Technology and was recruited by Raytheon Company, where he gained extensive knowledge of our national security working on the complex air missile systems used to defend our country. While working at Raytheon, he earned an MBA from Framingham State University. At Lucent Technologies, he worked on telecommunications equipment used to protect citizens in times of natural disasters and worldwide cyber-attacks. He most recently served as Director of the Merrimack Valley Small Business Center in Lowell, helping entrepreneurs start and expand small businesses to achieve a life of self-sufficiency and a sense of personal achievement.

Terry is currently Chair of the Westford School Committee, on which he has served for the past six years, working on a local level to find solutions and solve problems to ensure that all children attain the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in our ever-expanding global economy. Understanding that quality education is the foundation of our nation’s society and economy, he is ready to take that fight to Washington.

Terry has lived in this district, worked in this district, and volunteered in this district his entire life. He and his wife Kerry (also a native of Lowell) are raising three school-aged children in Westford, where they have lived for the past 13 years.

Our country is facing serious challenges, and we need a serious problem solver. As your representative in Congress, Terry will continue his lifelong commitment to public service and work tirelessly to represent the interests of the hardworking individuals and families of the 3rd Congressional District.

And just as he has in everything Terry has done in his life—as a citizen, as a public servant, and as a professional—he will get the job done.
