The Man Behind The Dream
Matt Garcia was a young man with a vision for the great City of Fairfield. He was the youngest city councilman elected in the State of California in November, 2007. Matt was a great young leader and an inspiration to all who knew him.
Tragically, we lost Matt when he was only 22 years old to gun violence. A man, high on drugs, pointed a gun in the direction that Matt was standing, and on September 1, 2008, Matt's life was cut short; however, his LEGACY, LEADERSHIP, and SPIRIT live on.
Matt's "Dream" involved supporting the youth of our community by creating places for them to go and things for them to do. He believed the way to change a culture of violence and crime is directly related to youth involvement. He also believed that by uniting a community together, all people would have a sense of responsibility to the great City of Fairfield.
The message: "Keep the Dream Alive"
