Congressman Ted Yoho represents North Central Florida’s 3rd Congressional district which includes Alachua, Union, Gilchrist, Bradford, Marion, Clay, Suwannee, Dixie, Lafayette, Columbia, Levy, Madison, and Hamilton Counties. He was elected to the 113th Congress in November 2012. Prior to serving in Congress, Ted owned several successful animal practices and worked as a large animal veterinarian in the community.
Ted was born in Minnesota and moved to South Florida where he met his wife Carolyn in the 4th grade. Ted and Carolyn got married at 19 and began to work their way through college — Carolyn as a court reporter and Ted packing vegetables at night. After completing his AA degree at Broward Community College, Ted and Carolyn moved to Gainesville where Ted enrolled at the University of Florida. He graduated in 1983 with his bachelors degree in Animal Science and Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine.
In 1986, they had their first daughter; Katie, followed two years later by Lauren in 1988 and Tyler in 1990. Carolyn continued to build her own businesses by opening new court reporting agencies and helping Ted open additional practices. Ted and Carolyn began instilling a strong work ethic in their children early on in making family projects out of real estate investments and building their businesses. They instilled the principles of setting goals, the willingness to work hard and treating people fairly. Ted and Carolyn emphasized that if you did these things and took hold of opportunity, they could achieve the American Dream. After all, Ted and Carolyn were products of the American Dream.
In 2010, Ted and Carolyn sold their practices to focus on their time and energy on a new passion — Our Nation. Ted believes that more than ever our nation is drifting away from the ability to achieve the American Dream. In order to preserve it we need to get back to our founding principles, core values, and the Constitution. As a freshman Congressman he plans to champion legislation that reflects his values and those of the constituents he represents. Ted’s approach to government is guided by constitutional principles, the idea of small government, fiscal conservatism, personal responsibility and free enterprise.
When he is not in Washington representing the Gator Nation, he is home spending time with his family and constituents, fishing or cheering on his Gators.
