Ryan P. Aument (born December 16, 1976) is an American politician and Republican member of the Pennsylvania State Senate for the 36th district. Prior to his election to the State Senate in 2014, he served as a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, serving the 41st District, which includes portions of Lancaster County.

Before taking office in 2010, Aument was the Lancaster County Clerk of Courts, the 56th individual to hold this position.[1] In November 2010, Aument defeated Gerald E. Policoff in the general election to succeed Katie True. Aument sponsored teacher evaluation legislation in his first term. The bill was ultimately signed into law as Act No. 82 in the 2011-2012 legislative session.[2][3] In November 2012, Aument defeated Marcy Dubroff and retained his house seat.[4]

In the 2014 election, Aument ran for retiring Mike Brubaker's seat in the State Senate. He defeated Gordon Denlinger in the Republican primary, then defeated Democrat Gary J. Schrekengost in the general election.[5]
