Palm Desert, CA— Small business owner and former Assemblywoman, Bonnie Garcia continues to build support across Riverside County and today added to a growing list of local leaders that name her the best choice to represent California’s 28th Senate District. Tim Brown, Mayor Pro Tem for the City of Canyon Lake and Daryl Hickman, Mayor Pro Tem for Lake Elsinore both announced their endorsements today.
Daryl Hickman is currently serving his third term on the Lake Elsinore City Council and during that time he has worked with fellow Council Members to balance the city’s budget, incentivize outside investment, and strengthen the relationship between local schools and businesses. His leadership has been instrumental on numerous local projects, most notably the construction of the downtown River Walk.
“Bonnie Garcia is the only candidate in this race who truly has the experience to get things done at the state level,” said Hickman. “Her proven track record, coupled with her commitment to public safety, job creation, and education will provide Riverside County residents with a credible and accountable leader.”
Elected to the State Legislature in 2002, Garcia served three terms in a seat that covered a significant portion of the newly drawn Senate District. Her ability to overcome political partisanship and help pass legislation that toughened penalties on sexual offenders, retained jobs throughout the state and increased government efficiency continues to have an positive impact on the region.
With children born on military bases and raised in a law enforcement family, public safety and service have long been a tradition in Bonnie Garcia’s household. The importance that Garcia has placed on public safety has resulted in a tremendous amount of support from those who have sworn to protect and serve the residents of the District. To date, Garcia’s campaign is supported by organizations such as the California Professional Firefighters Association, California Police Chiefs Association, California Peace Officers Association, and the California Correctional Peace Officers Association.
“Public safety is the cornerstone responsibility of state government,” said Garcia. “Unfortunately bad public policy, high taxes and overbearing regulations continue to drive jobs from our State and undermine an economic recovery. In partnering with local leaders, I will work to incentivize investment and create jobs to ensure we have the resources to fully fund Police and Fire departments and keep our communities safe.”
In addition to Garcia’s commitment to public safety, she has provided a voice for conservative principles that continue to be threatened by a progressive majority in Sacramento. As an Assemblywoman, Garcia never voted for a tax increase and has received an “A” rating from the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association as well as the endorsement of Lew Uhler, President of the National Tax Limitation Committee.
“Bonnie has a tremendous amount of experience working on behalf of our local governments, and I know that she will advocate for local control while protecting the rights we cherish,” said Tim Brown.
Bonnie Garcia holds a degree in Workforce Development and Education and has taught Public Policy at Chapman University. She resides with her family in Palm Desert.
