Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Superar obstáculos: Todos los californianos enfrentan obstáculos para conseguir el éxito. Algunos ejemplos comunes son el acceso a vivienda, educación, trabajo, atención médica y justicia. Usaré la influencia de este cargo para ayudarlos a superar es
  • Representación genuina: Muchos de nosotros hemos sido excluidos del proceso político. Usaré la influencia de este puesto para proporcionarles representación genuina. Tendrán a un amigo en el gobierno y no lucharán solos.
  • Transparencia: Los datos del gasto del gobierno de California son menos accesibles que los de cualquier otro estado del país. La falta de transparencia en el gobierno corresponde a la falta de responsabilidad. Merecemos saber cómo se están gastando

Biografía

My name is Mario Garcia. I’m a Democratic candidate for State Assembly in California’s 9th District (Sacramento, Elk Grove, Galt, Lodi). I am a product of this community, and I am grateful for the opportunity it has provided for my family and me. I grew up in Galt, where I attended Valley Oaks and Fairsite Elementary, Greer Middle School, and graduated from Galt High School in 2002.

My most impactful memories are of watching my parents struggle to overcome obstacles to success. My father supported our family, which provided my mother with the freedom to pursue higher education. While he worked tirelessly to grow his small business, she spent sleepless nights studying at our kitchen table. In time, she transferred from Cosumnes River College to Sacramento State, where she earned her Bachelor’s degree. Her accomplishment remains one of the most pivotal experiences of my adolescence, as it paved the way for me to do the same.

My mother has since attained her Master’s degree and become an amazing teacher, touching the lives of countless students over the years. Today, my father is a successful local business owner of nearly thirty years. Although at times it was difficult, my parents were able to earn their success due to the opportunities found right here in this community. Their example taught me the value of hard work, determination, and consistency. I learned to feel comfortable taking on seemingly impossible challenges, and developed the fortitude to persist in the face of adversity. These lessons served me well as a business owner of ten years, and as a student. After attending Cosumnes River College, where I earned associate degrees in geography, social sciences, and liberal arts, I transferred to the University of California, Berkeley, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, with a specialization in American Politics.

Many of us have been excluded from the political process by politicians who practice extreme partisanship, favor special interests, and use their positions for personal gain. We deserve better! If elected, I will be a friend to the people of Assembly District 9 and use the influence of this office to help you overcome obstacles and improve your life. You will receive genuine representation. You will be welcome at our offices and encouraged to share your problems and complaints. You will have a friend in government, and you will not be alone in your struggle to overcome obstacles to success. Your problems will become my problems. I will work to ensure all residents of Assembly District 9 have access to housing, education, healthcare, and justice. I will make the system work for the betterment of the public by ensuring existing government agencies are properly administered, and that each has adequate personnel, supervision and accountability.

My experience as a business owner taught me the importance of honesty, transparency and accountability. For this reason, I am video documenting my campaign and will continue to do so daily throughout my administration. This footage will be made available online, ensuring the public knows exactly what takes place in my office. I ask for your vote in the Statewide Primary Election on June 5, because you deserve better!

Filosofía política

An important idea has been lost in our society: the role of elected officials.  The purpose of an elected official is to represent their constituents.  Yet, most forget this once they’re in office, and ignore the will of the people.

As your representative, I will survey your feelings on issues: The Second Amendment, high-speed rail, twin tunnels, police and prison reforms, sanctuary policies, homelessness, affordable housing, and the gas tax.  My vote will reflect your position on these issues.

Experience is only helpful if it is used to represent the people, not stay in office.  Elected officials often feel entitled and forget they are simply public servants.  It is their job to make life easier for their constituents, not use their position as a stepping-stone.

I’ve traveled throughout our District and met with countless people in Sacramento, Elk Grove, Galt and Lodi. What stands out to me the most, is that despite their desire to be included, so many people feel left out of the political process. It’s an unfortunate reality that many of the individuals who were elected to represent us, instead practice extreme partisanship, favor special interests, and use their positions for personal gain. They attend public forums and meetings, listen to our concerns and make promises to support us, but then vote in a manner which benefits themselves and those who finance their campaigns. This is exactly how we find ourselves in a culture of political apathy. We deserve better!
