Meet the Candidate
I am a proud American born in Richmond, Virginia. I am the daughter of a retired U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sergeant and Special Education public school teacher. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to travel extensively throughout the United States and Europe. My father instilled the value of service over self and my mother ensured that education and knowledge were keys to a greater understanding of our impact on others and the personal contributions we can make.
I continued the legacy of my father and enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, beginning my career at Fairchild Air Force Base in Spokane and was later stationed at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. I took a service-connected retirement, receiving the Meritorious Achievement Medal, for Heroism, in 1986. I am proud of the long, honorable family tradition of military service and commitment to our country at home and abroad. I am pleased to say my son followed in these footsteps by enlisting in the Washington Army National Guard and now serves as a recruiter.
Upon my separation from the Air Force in 1988 I moved to Sacramento, California. This was the beginning of my state service and a continuation of my passion for community activism and advocacy for people everywhere. I retired and moved to Liberty Lake, Washington in December of 2015 to be with my family including four young grandchildren. My commitment to building the public’s connection to its government has never changed.
I am a daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, neighbor and friend who wants to meet people at their point of need, immediately. I am running to represent all of us and am proud to say I am ready to serve the community of Liberty Lake.
Please elect Dg Garcia, City Council Position 1.
