Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Garcia's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

Fiscal responsibility

  • Excerpt: "As your representative in Salem I will continue to prevent tax and fee increases, while continuously working to improve our state’s budgetary effectiveness."

Job growth

  • Excerpt: "As your representative to Salem I will work hard to build consensus around economic projects for Douglas County where we can recover your tax dollars sitting in Salem and bring them back home and put them to work for us."

Student Education

  • Excerpt: "As you state representative I will continue to support our schools at current funding levels, and I will work with the House Republican Leadership team to draft bipartisan legislation which supports our great teachers and administrators. At some point in the future I hope to be able to support a revised bond measure, one more fiscally responsible than the last one, which will bring an Umpqua Community College to south county, and improve the infrastructure at the main campus."

Government working for you

  • Excerpt: "If the voters of District #2 send me to Salem I will do nothing if not work tirelessly to build consensus around issues which you the voters of District #2 care about. I will fight and win the battles protecting our Gun Rights, land use rights, and unborn baby’s right to life."

Service To Our Community

  • Excerpt: "As your Representative to Salem I will seek to get appointed to committees that oversee those areas of government which impact our poor and struggling families the most."
