Garcia, a security contractor, is married to his wife Natalia and has two boys, one and three. The Garcia family also have two Italian Mastiffs, a boy named Boaz and a girl named Ruth. Garcia’s mother Rebecca was also present at the recount Friday morning. KCE got a chance to speak with Garcia’s mother and wife Friday afternoon following the results of the recount. “My son Felix is respectful, honest and very loving,” said Rebecca Castañuela Tourville. “I am so proud of this big accomplishment.” Garcia’s wife echoed her mother-in-laws feelings, “Felix has impeccable integrity. He is so hard-working and a great father and husband.”

Garcia ran a very clean campaign for the entirety of the election. His opponent, Andy Berg was riddled with controversy and scandals, but still, Garcia focused on himself and his vision for Kenosha. “I campaigned on transparency and I plan to stay very engaged with my community, both on social media and personally, out in the neighborhoods. I want to seek input from my neighbors. Some of my priorities will be mental health treatment for our residents and Sheriff’s Deputies, who have tough and dangerous jobs.”

      1. Time will tell. Hebsounds like he would be a man for the people, but I supported Kerman and now look. I’m glad KCE keeps us informed and stays on top of issues with elected officials. Thank you.

  2. I’m so glad he won. An honest, family man which is a stark contrast to his opponent. Many blessings to Felix Garcia and his family.

  3. Andy Berg needs to go to jail.
    Is ridiculous stealing money from people.
    Being on p*** sites.
    What the hell The Democratic party members still support them.
    I didn’t see them come out against him at all.
    And I’m a Democrat

  4. It’s quite refreshing to see someone of faith and integrity in office. Let’s hope that the position and politics doesn’t corrupt him. Stay strong, my friend.

  5. Super Proud of him Way to Go Felix…I watched him grow up in his younger years an i had a a feeling he would do something Great with his life and here he goes. Its Beautiful to see because i know he’s a man of integrity because he demonstrated it in his youth!

  6. Whiny little Berg’s father never even taught him the good
    sportsmanship of congratulating the winner.
    He was probably one of those sniveling little brats
    that went home crying to his mom, when he didn’t
    get picked to play neighborhood ball games.

    Just your typical, entitled little diaper load.
