COACHELLA CITY COUNCILMAN EDUARDO GARCIA RUNS FOR MAYOR
Incumbent City Councilman Eduardo Garcia in a prepared statement announced his candidacy for Mayor at the City Council meeting this past Wednesday. Garcia acknowledged marital problems after a spousal complaint over a year ago and in an honest forthright statement accepted his responsibility.
He thanked Our Lady of Soledad Church for helping him grow spiritually and assisting him to overcome a relationship crisis.
He emphasized the fact, despite any problems he never skipped a beat in representing the community nor did he abdicate any responsibility. In wishing his candidate well, he welcomed a responsible and respectable campaign concentrating on community issues.
“I will be on the campaign trail seeking the communities support and listening. The community deserves two candidates who will run a respectable and honest campaign, a campaign with honesty, that is forthcoming and with integrity.” Garcia asked his opponent to endorse a positive campaign which would provide a positive image of the city of Coachella.
While Garcia is seeking to run based on issues with integrity, important to the City of Coachella, his opponent was non-committal to any handshake of understanding.
Garcia is focusing on the need of the city for a new direction of development with the community in mind. “We need a city with maintained parks and areas of recreation for our families”.
A recent study of the City of Coachella has determined one third of the population is under 15 years of age and the average age of its citizens is 26. Garcia is 29 years old and studied Political Science at the University of California, Riverside. He also majored in Minority Studies including indigenous Americans. He has been on the City Council since 2004.
