The staff has one primary rule to follow – explore all the good that Gundo offers. The Swanson family donating an In-n-Out truck for city employees is no exception.

Tyler, Ron, and Troy SwansonRon Swanson, known for his generosity and city involvement, along with his sons, Tyler and Troy, wanted to say thank you to all El Segundo city employees by sponsoring an In-n-Out truck on September 11, 2017.  The Swanson family has lived in El Segundo since 1990 and has been very involved in city events and charitable giving since they arrived.

On September 11, 2017, city employees showed up with growling stomachs in anticipation for the much-deserved burgers courtesy of the Swanson family.  The event took place in front of the fire department on main and city employees waited anxiously in line for fresh burgers, fries, and drinks.

Being big fans of Good in Gundo, we reached out to Ron for a quick Q&A to share this good deed.

We have great city employees from the fire, to parks and rec, to public works, the upfront and behind the scenes people. This was a way of saying thank you for doing what they do.  I know what they go through and our City staff has been downsized and I just wanted to say thank you because I appreciate what they do.

The business in 1985 and personally December of 1990.

You can make a difference here. It’s small enough to make a difference. you can go to City council meeting and they listen, you can go to the school board and they listen. Everyone kind of knows everyone around here.
