My goal is to cultivate and establish an environment at City Hall and in our neighborhoods in which we can connect, build and grow together.
Joshua A. Garcia is a Master’s in Public Administration graduate of Westfield State University. In 2015, BusinessWest named him to the magazine’s Forty Under 40 list of rising stars.
Garcia, 35, is a full-time public administrator with a focus on community development and good governance. He has served as Property Manager for the Holyoke Housing Authority, Municipal Services Project Manager for the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission’s Community Development Section and is now the Town Administrator for the Town of Blandford. He is dedicated to improving the quality-of-life for all residents.
My vision for the City of Holyoke is one shared by many people of every corner of the City and that is to cultivate an environment within our local government and our neighborhoods that is sustainable so that we can support the very efforts that help build our community. Like everyone else, I want to see strong economic development, good public education, advanced public safety efforts, and quality municipal services.
