Newman endorses Ann Howard in Precinct 3
Monday, March 16, 2020 by Jo Clifton
Shiloh Newman, who ran unsuccessfully for the Democratic nomination for Travis County Commissioner Precinct 3, endorsed Ann Howard last week. Howard, who won 48 percent of the vote, will face Valinda Bolton in a runoff scheduled for May 26. The other candidate in the race, Sheri Soltes, has not indicated whether she intends to endorse either candidate. The winner of the runoff will face Republican Becky Bray in November. In the Republican primary for House District 47, former Council Member Don Zimmerman has endorsed Jennifer Fleck. Zimmerman, who had a one-vote margin over Justin Berry on election night, was behind by one vote after a count of late ballots. The winner of the Republican primary will face Democrat Rep. Vikki Goodwin in November.
