Assemblyman Eduardo Garcia is continuing the work of his predecessor with the introduction of the Border Air and Water Act, which is an attempt to help mitigate public health issues because of pollution.

“I’m here to introduce a series of bills that will enhance the overall quality of life for this border city of Calexico and create greater opportunities for funding and address a series of issues affecting not only the economic vitality opportunities in this region, but more importantly the public health and well being of the people who live here,” Garcia said during a press conference Friday.

As the County beat reporter, I cover the Board of Supervisors and the city councils for El Centro and Imperial, as well as health issues and community events. I received a Master's degree in Specialized Journalism from USC Annenberg in 2013.
