TRACY, CA – – Today, County Supervisor Bob Elliott announced the endorsement of a strong list of Manteca leaders in his campaign for California’s 10th Congressional District.

Former Mayor Steve DeBrum cited Elliott’s commitment to the community as the reason for his endorsement, “We need someone with strong core values who will listen to the people in the district and will make decisions on a no-nonsense basis. Bob Elliott is the person who will accomplish that task without compromising the best interests of the citizens of the district.

Bob is a rock-solid fiscal conservative who treats every taxpayer dollar with care, always trying to make government more effective and efficient while opposing wasteful spending.”
