Garcia is the quintessential portrayal of a hypocrite. How can this man profess his commitment to public safety when he himself is a danger to the public. Yes he hit a parked car, but most DUI drivers don't hit anything. They are stopped during routine traffic stops. The mere fact that he was so intoxicated that he actually hit something (within the city no less) makes it an egregious offense. He should resign effective immediately and be shamed for his actions. The reality is we all make mistakes; however, there are consequences for our mistakes. Garcia should be and is held to a higher standard given his public office. He represents La Mirada as its mayor. The fact that he actually spoke against anything alcohol related within the city only serves to discredit him. Ultimately anything he says now carries very little weight. He is a disgrace to the city and the residents he supposedly represents; a resignation is in order...

I was passing walking by after the accident happen, it was loud. The street has a history of accidents thou. People drive so fast there, not realizing it a a curve into its to late. I don't want to say to much i don't want to get in trouble. I didn't know at the time the driver was the mayor into the next day until i read up on it online. I decide to continue walking home, because there was a whole lot of drama happening at the time.

Hey Gabe - you should go to AA. You claim that Safety of the City is a big commitment to you.....but OOPS!!!! And by the way, the newspapers
made you smell like "Roses", but running away from a crime scene, having the office picking you up 2 blocks away, what kind of morals do you have as a Mayor......????
