Letter to the Editor

| Opinion | April 18, 2019

With Mike Garcia’s announcement of being a candidate for California’s 25th District last Wednesday and that news pushing up against the Gazette’s time line to go to print, wherein there was a brief mention on the topic, I’d like to elaborate on Mike Garcia’s impressive background.

This candidate graduated from Annapolis, graduating in the top three percent of the class then went onto graduate from Georgetown with a Master’s degree in National Security Studies.

As a result of his outstanding accomplishments in Advanced Jet Pilot Training flying t-45 jets, wherein he set records, he garnered the well-earned and meritorious opportunity to be one of “the first F/A-18E Super Hornet strike fighter pilots in the Navy..”

He went on to fly F/A-18E jets after being deployed multiple timed on a nuclear-;powered aircraft carrier; the USS Nimitz. In fact, according to officials, Garcia flew 30-plus “combat missions during Operation Iraqi freedom over Baghdad, Fallujah, and Tikrit”.

Garcia has had experience as a small business owner as well as being an executive for a large corporation. He lives in Saugus with his wife, a small business owner, and their two sons.
