Eades is well-educated and experienced, holding an MBA from North Carolina State University. He has been a resident of District D for over 12 years and has prior experience working with the town.
Eades has been actively involved in the community, volunteering with Cary’s Planning and Zoning board for six years. This experience has given him valuable insights into the town’s development and growth, which should prove helpful during his tenure with the Town Council.
As a council member, Eades hopes to encourage investments in non-vehicular transportation options, such as biking and walking paths, to promote a healthier and more sustainable community. Eades has noted that while Cary as a whole has been moving in the right direction by providing more opportunities for cyclists and pedestrians, there are parts of the western side of Cary that are falling behind. He also plans to maintain the current property tax rate, which is the lowest in Wake County, to help residents and businesses save on their tax bills. Eades has mentioned that he would be reluctant to support any proposed tax increase unless “the benefits greatly outweigh the costs.”
Eades hopes to continue building on Cary’s strong economic development and creating opportunities for businesses and entrepreneurs. Eades hopes that, together with the Council, to continue offering incentives for business owners to grow and thrive in Cary.
A public reception to welcome Ryan Eades will occur at Cary Town Hall on Thursday, January 26th, at 5:30 PM. All citizens are welcome to join. Eades will be sworn in at the council meeting following the reception.
