Mike Garcia Attempts to Conquer ‘The Hill’

| News | April 11, 2019

Saying he was unhappy with the 2018 election results and “couldn’t just stand on the sidelines and not do anything about it,” Republican Mike Garcia announced Wednesday that he will challenge Rep. Katie Hill in the 25th congressional district.

Garcia, 43 in a couple of weeks, has lived in Valencia since 1983 and graduated Saugus High, which he said might be the only thing he has in common with Hill (D-Agua Dulce).

He said he attended in the U.S. Naval Academy and flew F-18 jets during his 15 years in the service.

“After serving the country for so long and fighting for the values and losing friends in the process, it’s something worth fighting for,” he said. “(Hill) ran a campaign that confused a lot of our voters and she did not represent the district, and I think she’s aligned with the far-left agenda of folks like Alexandria (Ocasio-)Cortez and Nancy Pelosi.”

Garcia is the second person to challenge Hill, following local businesswoman Suzette Valladares.
