Turlock, CA – Republican Ted Howze, DVM, announced the endorsement of Back the Badge California, a pro-law enforcement organization dedicated to supporting women and men who wear the badge. The endorsement comes in advance of a Back the Badge California rally that will be held Saturday at the Turlock Police Department.
“With bills like AB 392 moving through California’s far-left State Legislature putting officers’ lives at risk, it’s even more important that we have Members of Congress and a federal government that will be a check on our Legislature and support our police officers,” noted Dr. Ted Howze.
Dr. Ted Howze is a lifelong resident of the Central Valley and former Turlock Councilmember. Ted grew up on a farm south of Fresno where he developed a love for our valley, became conversational in Spanish, and worked in the fields through college. He’s worked for the past 24 years as a Large Animal Veterinarian. He is the proud father of three sons and has developed a number of successful businesses, including one of the first local dot.com companies.
In 2013, Ted’s wife Sharon passed away suddenly due to an undiagnosed heart condition that could have been treated. That experience drew Ted’s focus to a healthcare system that consistently puts profiteering ahead of the health of patients. He recently married Laura, a math teacher and student activities director for a local high school.
At the end of the recent first quarter campaign finance reporting period, Ted Howze for Congress reported more than $320,000 cash-on-hand.
