During the Turf Publicists of America award luncheon at the Global Symposium Tuesday, Dave Zenner and Tom LaMarra were re-elected as secretary-treasurer and vice-president, respectively, and Ryan Martin was elected as vice-president; his first time on the board.
Dave Zenner is a freelance publicist, a racing official at Hawthorne, and was the stakes coordinator at Arlington Park. Tom LaMarra holds a diverse set of positions including Communications Director for the Maryland Thoroughbred Horseman's Association, and Coordinator for the Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred Championships. NYRA's Ryan Martin is a racing communications specialist. The new slate of officers was installed immediately and will serve a two-year term.
LaMarra, Zenner, and Martin join TPA President Wendy Davis and Vice-Presidents Najja Thompson, Kevin Kerstein, and Clare Crawford, each of whom was elected last year to serve for 2021-22.
