Anna's family has served Bisbee for a long time, and in many ways. "My roots in Bisbee run deep, as my family has been here since the early 1900's. Our family has served this community in numerous ways. My uncle, Mike Garcia, was an Alderman in the 1970's, and my father, Ruben, was serving his second term as Council Member when he passed away. My family and I remain deeply committed to this community."
