Small Business Owner Angelica Garcia Announces Campaign for Texas State House
Republican small business owner Angelica Garcia announced today she is running for Texas House of Representatives in House District 132, serving Katy and parts of Houston.
With only a dream and $500, Garcia founded AIM Global Logistics, a transportation company that moves freight for distributors and manufacturers, and moves vital components for the oil and gas industry. She built up AIM Global Logistics to become a multi-million-dollar company now operating in 48 states, Canada and Mexico.
Born and raised in Texas, Garcia was raised to value family and community first. She runs her business by those values, too. She is running to strengthen public education, defend the right to life, protect the 2nd Amendment, and secure our border. Angelica will also ensure Katy and West Houston have critical infrastructure needed to keep up with rapid area growth.
“I’m fortunate to have the chance to serve Katy and West Houston,” said Garcia. “Helping the community has always been my first priority. This country has given so much to me and I want to give back to those who have supported me, protect our God-given freedom, and be a voice in Austin for those who need help now.”
Garcia also gave back in her life by founding AIM Family Ministries, a non-profit focused on helping people locally and nationally. Her organization aided the recovery from Hurricane Harvey by using her company’s trucks and drivers to deliver supplies to areas of Houston. AIM Family Ministries also sends several shipments of diapers and formula each month to people in need in places like Venezuela, whose socialist economy recently collapsed. Angelica also leads annual mission trips serving organizations like Huellas in Ecuador that fight human and child sex trafficking. Angelica donates 10% of her company’s net profit to various ministries to aide orphanages and fight poverty.
Originally from Corpus Christi, Angelica is the daughter of Aristeo and Elsa Garcia and the oldest of her three siblings: Rosie, Adriana and Gabriel. She is the proud mother of three children: Isabel, Hamilton, and Kross. Isabel is a student at Texas Tech, Hamilton is an incoming freshman at UNT in Denton, and Kross turns three in October. Angelica earned her Bachelor’s in economics and Spanish from the University of Dallas. She is a member of Crosspoint West Green church in Katy.
