ABOUT ME

A Dedicated Father, Husband and Family Man

A loving family man and dedicated public servant, Joe Garcia has called South Florida his home his entire life. In 1963, Joe was born to Joe Sr. and Carmen Garcia at Mount Sinai Hospital. Like many exiles that came to this country seeking freedom and opportunity, Joe’s parents worked hard to get ahead. His dad started out washing cars at Miami International Airport, while his mom waited on tables at the Howard Johnson Hotel on Miami Beach. They didn’t have much money, but Joe’s parents instilled in him values like hard work, love of country, treating others the way you’d like to be treated and faith in God.
