Michigan United is pleased to learn that local attorney Lawrence Garcia has been nominated for the important post of corporation counsel.
Garcia has been an important voice in the Latino community for many years. He has shown great leadership as past president of the Michigan Hispanic Bar Association and has been an advocate on important civil rights issues. Garcia has spoken out for just immigration reform and against abuses such as immigration raids at schools. He and his firm have often volunteered as civil rights monitors at the polls in Southwest Detroit, ensuring that all members of the community are able to exercise their right to vote. He also has the strong legal background and good values that this position demands.
Mayor Duggan has made a wise choice and Lawrence Garcia will make an able public servant.
