Nathan Russo Aims At Kingston

Two Democratic political newcomers are vying for a chance to run against Republican incumbent Congressman Jack Kingston. Nathan Russo is one of those seeking an upset against the 20-year incumbent. He talks about his positions on important election issues with GPB's Orlando Montoya.

NAME: Nathan Russo

BORN: Atlantic City, 1943

HOME: St. Simons Island, Georgia

EDUCATION: Nathan attended Florida State University, Miami-Dade Jr College in Miami, Florida and Pace University in New York City.

CAREER: He entered the Navy in 1962 and left four years later to own and manage his own property search and property appraisal company in New York City.


QUOTE: "There's two ways that I would suggest that we get more jobs in this country. I do like building, and government building like they did during Roosevelt's time to stimulate the economy. Everybody's heard about our roads that are cracking, our bridges that are falling down, and I do believe that government can play a role here."

GPB has invited the other Democratic primary candidate, Lesli Messinger, for an interview.
