Russ Munson is a proven business leader with 30 years of experience, not a politician. Russ was born in Lodi, attended Lodi High School and was captain of the Lodi High Football Squad. Russ received his college degree from San Jose State, joined the US Navy and became a Naval Aviator, flying jets from a carrier in the Mediterranean Sea. After his tour in the Navy, Russ returned to Lodi and started a business and has been in business for 30 years.

During those 30 years, Russ has managed huge budgets, supervised personnel and created jobs in the community. One of the jewels of Lodi, Wine and Roses, was created from a simple B&B into an upscale destination, and has put Lodi’s Wine Industry on the map. Wine and Roses was a catalyst for the growing ag-tourism industry bringing visitors to our area, creating hundreds of jobs for the local economy.

Russ knows firsthand the burden of government regulations and taxation on business, which stifle job creation. Russ will work hard to make changes.

Russ opposes the “Tunnels” that will ship our water to the south, and will do everything in his power to prevent the stealing of our water. Russ has strong support from agriculture because he understands the issues facing our growers and the family farms. Russ has the endorsement of the Lodi Chamber of Commerce. Russ also has the endorsement of Supervisor Bob Elliot, Chairman of the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors. Russ will work diligently to bring industry to San Joaquin County and to create private sector jobs. A vote for Russ is a vote for private sector job creation. We ask everyone to join us and vote for Russ!
