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!

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!
