Turlock, CA – The Ted Howze for Congress campaign is pleased to announce the endorsement from Robert “Bob” Martina, Mayor of the City of Newman. Martina joins a number of other elected officials from across District 10, including most of the local mayors, who have identified Ted Howze as the best representative of Valley values and the leading Republican challenger heading into the 2020 election.
Last year, our nation’s heart was broken when City of Newman police officer Ronil Singh was murdered while on patrol. Early in the campaign, Dr. Howze earned the support of Back the Badge due to his longstanding support for local women and men in law enforcement.
Background: 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. He and his wife Laura, a Catholic High School teacher, have both dedicated themselves to critically reforming healthcare for all Americans.
