Graci Garces will be able to hit the ground running for both the district’s Hispanic families and its Fortune 500 corporations.

For the past decade, Garces has worked at City Hall for District I, first for state Rep. Carol Alvarado when she was a city council member, and now as chief of staff for term-limited incumbent James G. Rodriguez. Garces has worn out shoe leather walking the streets of this community, serving as the face of city government for numerous civic clubs and neighborhood organizations.

After serving as a bridge between City Hall and the community for so long, she knows what the district needs and how City Hall works. Voters should finally make it official and elect Graci Garces for city council District I.
