Lawyer and small business co-owner David A. Martinez enjoyed strong support from the Hispanic community in his bid for the Erie County Legislature's 2nd District seat.
Among his supporters were two local Hispanic newspapers and the Puerto Rican Committee for Community Justice.
Martinez noted those endorsements on his candidate questionnaire to The Buffalo News — but also added two more endorsement lines, from the people who really counted.
One was from "Mom & Dad." The other mentioned the endorsement of his wife and son.
Though family members are rarely listed by candidates under official endorsements, given Martinez's first run for office, it's clear his family's support was worth a special mention.
