Sturgeon graduated from Montgomery County R-II High School. He has spent 31 years working in the construction industry, holding positions such as superintendent and foreman on many central Missouri construction projects. Sturgeon is also the president of Carpenters Local 1925 in Columbia, MO.
Sturgeon submitted the following statement to Ballotpedia regarding his political philosophy:
I chose to run to give the voters of district 42 a choice. I, for one feel as though our current legislators did very little to help improve the lives of working families. I want to improve public education, and to work towards a more fair taxation policy, and to encourage business through worker training programs, not tax breaks that are passed on to working folks like myself. Many burdens have been aimed at working families like Right-To-Work, reduced taxes on the wealthiest, and the extremism from wealthy campaign contributions purchasing our political process. Medicaid expansion should be adopted to encourage an additional 24,000 jobs to our state and stop the flow of our federal tax dollars going to other states that have. 
—Rod Sturgeon, Information submitted on Ballotpedia’s biographical information submission form on August 2, 2014
