Good Turnout for Juan Garcia Event

In what was clearly the largest turnout of this year's candidate events, over sixty area residents came to Los Comales Restaurant on Tuesday evening to meet Juan Garcia. Garcia, a former navy aviator who is still in the reserves, is looking to unseat Gene Seaman as State Representative in District 32. The distric includes Aransas, San Patricio and Calhoun Counties as well as a portion of Nueces.

I'd say Juan was well received by the crowd. Garcia spoke about his candidacy and commented on the trouble that Seaman is in over his support of the expanded Del Mar tax district and high insurance rates. Because of Seaman's troubles, Juan is getting a lot of support from Republicans like his Campaign Treasurer, Joe Hall. Mr. Hall admits that the size of Juan's Republican support does not get reported on much but some journalists are reporting it.

The Aransas County Democratic Club made a $100 donation to his campaign and there were numerous individual donations. Garcia says that all the signs, stickers and pamphlets are paid for and that any new money is going to buy air time on radio and television. If you were unable to attend the dinner please consider using his link on the left to make a donation and help him get the word out.
