BERGEN COUNTY, NJ – Richard Garcia is going to Bring Business Back to New Jersey!

Saddle Brook resident Richard Garcia is proud to announce his candidacy on the Republican ticket for the State Senate in New Jersey’s 38th Legislative District.

With the State of New Jersey at a crossroads, it is no longer the bastion for middle-class families that it once was.  Over 75% of New Jerseyans live paycheck to paycheck, and people are fleeing in record numbers.  Under the current Democrat leadership, it has become harder to live in the Garden State, even more difficult to find a good paying job, and impossible to retire in.  Moreover, New Jersey was just ranked as the second WORST state in the country to start a business by the CATO Institute.

“It’s almost impossible to do business in New Jersey,” said Garcia.  “I come from truly humble beginnings raised in a large Latino family in Garfield, NJ, I know what New Jersey families are going through right now.  It’s a daily struggle, and many are contemplating leaving the state.”

Richard is currently the Chief Executive Officer of the Newark Board of Education Employees Credit Union.  With his unique background in business and the financial sector, Richard brings a different and creative mindset of governance – one focused on transparency and accountability.

“I intend to use my skill set in Trenton to make New Jersey a place where we don’t all just survive, but rather a place where we all thrive,” Garcia explained.  “New Jersey needs to be a state where we can also afford to stay with our loved ones throughout retirement.”

New Jersey’s 38th Legislative District is one of 40 districts that make up the map for the New Jersey Legislature, covering the Bergen County municipalities of Bergenfield, Fair Lawn, Glen Rock, Hasbrouck Heights, Lodi, Maywood, New Milford, Oradell, Paramus, River Edge, Rochelle Park, and Saddle Brook, and the Passaic County borough of Hawthorne.

“This is a competitive district that we intend to flip,” Garcia stated.  “All 13 towns are homes to countless small businesses that have not had a voice in Trenton, and sadly, many of them are now gone forever.”

Richard’s running mates in the 38th Legislative District include Al Mastrofilipo and Jerry Taylor.

“We need oversight back to Trenton, period – a lopsided, one party government cannot provide that,” Garcia added.  “As New Jersey’s 38th District Senator, come November 2021, I will put small business and our workers before any special interests or lobbyists, and put all state residents over political parties.”
