When asked why he is running for Congress in 2020 Garcia said, “I’m running because I don’t want California politicians to bring the same policies of high taxes, out of control homelessness and lower wages to Congress. Our tax burden is skyrocketing and legislation like AB5 cracks down on independent contractors, small businesses, and limits jobs.

We need term limits to get rid of career politicians in both parties. I have the choice to stand on the sidelines and see what happens but that is not in my DNA. This is an extension of my desire to serve, this time to fight for my district. We need to be aggressive this time. To that end, I am seeking support to become the 25th District Congressional Representative in 2020. If not me, who? If not today, when?”
