NAME: Bianca Garcia

DATE OF BIRTH: June 1986

YOUR BACKGROUND/EDUCATION: Fulbright Scholar, Rome, Italy, 2009.

Master’s Degree, New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, 2008.

Bachelor’s Degree, Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, 2006.

EXPERIENCE/OCCUPATION: I have spent more than 1,000 hours in volunteer and staff political work here in NH for the past several years, including work on my sister Marilinda Garcia’s successful campaigns for State Representative and directing a regional office for the NH Republican State Committee.  I am passionate about being informed and engaged in local elections, and am ready to take that next step of commitment to serve as a State Representative.  My past experiences have taken me all over the globe, including Europe, South America, and Central America and having observed the cultures, governments, and daily lives of their peoples I know how precious and exceptional our American system is – the basis for pursuing what we call the American dream.   For work in my own field, I continue to perform with symphonies, develop recordings, and teach in the New England area. I have also been honored to produce shows for Salem cable television.

PRIOR ELECTED OFFICE: None

PERSONAL: I have lived in Salem for over 24 years.

PRIORITIES: I will work for -

  • Lower taxes
  • Incentives for business in NH
  • Local control of schools and School Choice
  • Smaller government
  • Resources for our veterans
  • 2nd Amendment Rights
  • Pro-Life issues

Why are you running?

I am running to promote Conservative principles and less infringement of liberty by overbearing government regulation,  so that we have more freedom to get ahead, to create, and to pursue happiness.  I would also like to protect our freedom of conscience which is facing ever more hostility.

What is your stance on expanded gambling in New Hampshire?

Since expanded gambling is currently illegal in New Hampshire I believe the people should be able to vote on it by way of a state-wide ballot initiative if that is to be changed.

How would you help stoke economic development in the state of New Hampshire?

I would encourage economic development in NH by working to keep taxes low, especially the Business Profits Tax and Business Enterprise Tax, and by supporting measures to eliminate unnecessary regulations on small businesses. Looking at this issue long term, I think economic strength starts with children getting an excellent education, therefore, I strongly support school choice and the local control of schools.

Remember to vote on September 11th, Primary Day!  Thanks for your support!

Just like her sister Marilinda does not support women's rights, or healthcare for women under the Obama affordable care act and will not advocate for gambling at Rockingham.

Jane - you can't be serious - you say that Bianca, a woman, does not support women's rights?? That is ridiculous! Maybe what you mean but are afraid to say is that she is not in favor of unrestrictive abortion, unlike our President (a man) who voted 4 times in the Illinois senate against the "Born Alive Infant Protection Act", of which a similar bill passed the US Senate 98-0 (thats right, lots of democrats voted for it) - <a href="http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/292204/obama-s-infanticide-votes-patrick-brennan" article </a> .

Just running to add to "Bully" O'Brien''s ranks. No way she is getting a vote from this family!

I was going to vote for you but your objectives for seeking the office note that you want "to work for less infringement of liberty by overbearing government regulation" but then note your position on gambling is to allow a referendum on the issue since expanded gambling is currently illegal. These two positions are inconsistent. The individual has no protection or guarantee to preserve a maximum degree of individual freedom if relatively minor issues such as gambling require "referendums" to protect basic freedoms. The state has an obligation to assure maximum personal freedoms by not submitting all issues of personal pursuit or recreation to an occassional majority of poorly informed citizens for veto. This is one of the reasons our Founding Fathers wisely supported the Bill of Rights. The arguments against gambling are spurious at best and not supported by my experiences worldwide.

I think you meant they do not support men or their rights.
bruno September 10, 2012 at 12:34 PM
Bianca and Marilinda Garcia will not get my vote. Both of them no matter what the say about issue positions is just talk. They both refuse to say yes or no on gaming, They both refuse to get involved in Salem issues, They both want to boost Free Staters Project,at 26 and 29 they have no job and still live at home, they both do not understand what is is to pay taxes living at home. They both boost about traveling the world while others worry about paying their mortage or rent. They are plain out of touch with the voters.

Simon you are just pointing out on all these profiles who people in Salem should NOT vote for!
Sean Murphy December 23, 2012 at 01:59 PM
She supports babies rights.
Sean Murphy December 23, 2012 at 02:00 PM
Apparently she doesn't need one. :-)

Are you Salem residents happy now that you've voted in these Garcia girls? Look at the questions above and tell me where it states Bianca would vote against expanded gambling when 81 friggin' percent of Salem voters are in favor??? The Garcia sisters are an embarrassment to the town of Salem and best be removed ASAP!
