POLITICS | Statement from Congressman Mike Garcia on Lyft Nearly Shutting Down Due to AB5

Christy Smith flashback: “No way, shape or form was this a bill that slashed CA jobs”
Statement from Congressman Mike Garcia:

“After voting for AB5 twice, Assemblywoman Smith assured everyone that it wouldn’t be a jobs-killer, but today the people of the 25th Congressional District and throughout the state know she lied as her legislation took our state to the edge of losing hundreds of thousands of jobs. Unfortunately, today’s delay is just that – a delay – as Smith and her pals in Sacramento continue pushing AB5, which means less jobs in California during a pandemic.”

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. He was elected to Congress on May 12, 2020, winning a Special Election with 55% and becoming the first California Republican to flip a Democrat seat since 1998.

The 25th district encompasses the cities of Santa Clarita, Simi Valley, Palmdale, Lancaster and the northern part of the San Fernando Valley.  The median income is $76,866 and the ethnic breakdown is 45.8% White, 8% Black, 7.7% Asian and 35.3% Hispanic.
