Russ is a Consensus Builder

Official response from submitted

"I would be incredibly proud to have the opportunity to serve with Russ. He’s made me a better Park Board commissioner. When he is attacked, he doesn’t respond in kind and I think that is a very noble and important characteristic for leaders. He listens to folks who have a different view than he does, and is very consensus building."

—Brad Bourn, Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board Commissioner
