Brentwood, Calif. — Three combat tour U.S. Army veteran, financial adviser, and candidate for California’s 9th Congressional district, William Martinek (R-Brentwood), 35, proposed that the Monday after the Super Bowl become a national holiday.
“The Super Bowl is a unique American experience that brings friends and families together every year, and it should be recognized by Congress as a federal holiday,” Martinek said. “Once elected, I will author legislation that allows hardworking Americans the opportunity to spend more time with their loved ones.”
California’s 9th Congressional District includes portions of Contra Costa County (Brentwood, Antioch, Oakley), San Joaquin County (Lathrop, Lodi, Stockton), and Sacramento County (Galt).
Martinek is challenging incumbent Congressman Jerry McNerney.
