POLITICS | Race for the 25th – Garcia Joins Lancaster Forum, Smith Chooses Maxine Waters and Partisan Politics Over Speaking to Voters

Garcia answers questions from voters while Smith hangs with radical Maxine Waters
Valencia, CA – Congressman Mike Garcia today participated in the Lancaster Chamber of Commerce Congressional Candidate Forum to answer questions from local business owners and share his vision of lower taxes for the 25th district. The event was originally a forum for both candidates prior to liberal Christy Smith’s late-notice withdrawal.
“It’s no surprise Liberal politician Christy Smith continues bailing on forums and debates – she doesn’t want to answer questions about why she continues to lie about her votes to raise taxes and slash jobs with her signature bill AB5,” said Garcia Campaign Spokesperson Lance Trover. “If you want to see who Christy Smith will side with in Washington, look no further than her decisions in just the past 24 hours – she has the time to pal around with radical leftist Maxine Waters, but passes on opportunities to speak to 25th district voters about how their families and small businesses will make it through this crisis.”
After issuing a publicity stunt letter listing her debate demands, liberal Smith has since declined an opportunity to debate Garcia hosted by the SCV Signal, a top local outlet, and backed out of today’s forum, ironically citing an “unforeseen committee hearing.” The Sacramento politician, who was fired as chair of the Joint Legislative Committee on Emergency Management after failing to hold a single hearing on the coronavirus, once again shows that she has no problem skipping out on her duties in favor of partisan politics.

Smith was too busy to speak to the voters who will be casting their ballots in the next 20 days, but she did have the time to attend a fundraiser with liberal Rep. Maxine Waters.


Mike Garcia believes in a strong national defense and is a pro-business, pro-taxpayer, political outsider with nearly 20 years of service to this country as one of the first Super Hornet strike fighter pilots in the Navy and is a highly decorated US Naval Officer.  Garcia is a first-generation American whose father immigrated to the US in 1959 and has lived in the 25th district for nearly all of his life.  Garcia lives in Santa Clarita with his wife and two sons.
