The book titled “A Man Called Tet” will highlight the successful political career and achievements of an undeniably excellent leader who institutionalized “ Iskolar ng Bayan“, infrastructure development, promotion of health service and food subsidy to the barangay officials and elderly sectors and other projects which have uplifted the socio-economic well-being of the residents of the Province.
From president of the Arellano High School (now Bataan National High School) student council to House Representative of Bataan’s 2nd District and provincial governor, throughout his political career, Garcia had instilled the spirit of generosity, discipline and good governance.
The highly-motivated administration of Garcia focused on the value of quality education, excellent medical services, creation of job opportunities for the youth and other worthy programs for the good of the citizenry.
When the country’s first export processing zone in Mariveles was on a downward trend, the elder Garcia, being the representative of the Province’s 2nd district reenergized the economic zone and soon after EPZA locators, both foreign and local, started to come in.
Rep. Garcia is reputedly the father of petrochemical industry in the country when he valiantly fought for the establishment of the industry in Bataan instead of Batangas which the national leadership at that time wanted.
