Marty Russo
Congressman Marty Russo hails from the great town of Chicago, Illinois and he grew up in a big Italian family where he learned the value of hard work and getting an education. After graduating from DePaul Law School, Marty started his professional career in the State’s Attorney office of Illinois. His first work assignment was to tackle one of the most difficult problems facing Chicago – the violent street gangs that roamed the streets.  Marty spent 3 years in this dangerous job — gathering evidence and prosecuting gang members to put them behind bars. At the age of 30, Marty was elected as a moderate Democrat in the 3rd District of Illinois. When he arrived at the United States House of Representatives, he brought the same tenacity that it took to fight street gangs and used it to achieve compromise in Washington. Over the next 18 years Marty was involved in all the major issues facing Congress:  tax reform, saving social security and Medicare, the energy crisis, national security challenges and ever growing fiscal issues. Marty was best known for his many close relationships on both sides of the political aisle. I know he keeps in touch with more than one former president. After leaving Congress Marty went into the lobbying profession and quickly rose to become CEO of one of the most powerful firms in Washington. Now, in his “third career” Marty gives back by speaking and lecturing on how to make a positive difference in our Democracy by getting involved.
