Hon. Sylvia R Garcia


I have recently filed 15 pieces of legislation that I feel will greatly benefit the constituents of Senate District 6, and Texans across the state. These bills will increase voter participation, improve the quality of neighborhoods, protect employees in the workplace, improve public school funding, increase access to healthcare for women, and keep our kids safe from dangerous chemicals. I am currently in Austin working hard to ensure the passage of all of these important bills. If you ever have any questions about pending legislation in the Texas Legislature, please feel free to reach out to my office.


The Tejano Association for Historical Preservation 16th Annual Cesar Chavez Parade and Celebration will be held Saturday, March 28th, 2015, at 10:00 am. The parade will begin on the corner of the 6700 block of Cesar Chavez and Canal Street. Please join me at the parade and show your support for the legacy of the Mexican-American labor activist Cesar E. Chavez.


Please join me for the next Café con Sylvia in the Aldine area. I have hosted many of these informal “coffees” in the past, and they are a great way for constituents, local elected officials, and community leaders to network and discuss important topics in the community. So if you live in Aldine, Greater Northside, Greenspoint, North Forest, or anywhere else in Senate District 6, please stop by and join me for good coffee and great conversation.

Whether I am in the halls of the legislature or back at home in our district, I will always make the people of Senate District 6 my first priority.
