Ryan Williams is a conservative Christian, family man, successful businessman, sports coach, and law enforcement officer.

Ryan was raised in and has spent most of his life here in Denton County. Ryan and his wife of 23 years, Amber, have a 17-year-old son, Cole. They live in Sanger, Texas. 

Ryan learned to compete in sports as a child, and continued to play sports through high school and college. From the time Ryan was a child, he wanted to be a law enforcement officer, and began police ride-alongs at the age of 15. 

Ryan went to work as a sales rep in the medical industry out of college and quickly became the top ranked sales rep, and eventually a sales manager. Ryan would go on to become CEO of Williams Surgical Specialties, doing business as Priority One. The company was one of the leading full service medical device and repair companies in the US. Ryan was fortunate enough to sell the company in 2017 and was blessed to retire at that time. 

Ryan has been a non-paid reserve police officer for the last 23 years in Denton County and very much enjoys serving the public. Ryan and Amber love to be on their ranch with their assortment of almost 70 animals and are active with their son's sports. They are heavily involved in giving back to the community through charitable contributions. As CEO of Williams Surgical, Ryan chose pink and white as the company colors to support breast cancer awareness all year long. 

Ryan was elected County Commissioner for Precinct 1 in 2021, which covers the northern portion of Denton County.
