Dean Gualco: Human Resource Manager, City of Lodi.
First job: “My first job came when I was 7 years old and working on the family ranch. I did it through high school. We grew tomatoes, beans, apricots and walnuts. The ranch was in Tracy in the San Joaquin Valley. My dad also paid us, and his rule was that half would go in savings and we could spend the other half. He was a good boss.”
