American politician who served in the California State Assembly from 1968 to 1974 and as a California State Senator from 1974 to 1983. He was a Democrat.
Garcia, from Los Angeles, was the third Latino Democrat elected in 1968 to the Assembly. Peter R. Chacon, a Democrat from San Diego was elected in 1970. Together they formed the Chicano Legislative Caucus in 1973, along with three more Latinos, Joseph Montoya, Ray Gonzales, and Richard Alatorre, who elected to the State Assembly in 1972.
The formation of the Caucus was a significant achievement for the Latino community in California. The Caucus worked to create, and implement laws that serve to extend, protect, and reserve the rights of Californian Latinos, a first in California legislative history.
Garcia was a veteran of the U.S. Army. He married Blanche Alvarez in 1948 and had five children. He died on 10 April 1999 at age 69 in Los Angeles.
