Turlock, CA – John Walker, President of the Modesto City Schools Board of Education, is the latest elected official to endorse Ted Howze for Congress. Walker’s endorsement marks one dozen school board, city and county representatives who have pledged support for Dr. Howze’s bid for the 10th Congressional District.
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.
In 2013, Ted’s first 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. Recently married to his second wife Laura, a Catholic High School teacher, both have dedicated themselves to critically reforming healthcare for all Americans.
