About Michael Rivera

Hello Fellow Citizens,

I am a 44-year resident of the Central Coast—16 in Paso Robles and 28 in the Santa Maria Valley. My wife and I have been married for 46 years and have three adult children and five grandchildren. I have served on numerous governmental boards and commissions over my career, including the Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Commission (Chairman), Guadalupe Planning Commission, and the Mayor’s Housing Task Force in Santa Maria. I also have extensive experience in the private sector and with nonprofit organizations, including serving as Chairman and Chief Financial Officer of the Santa Barbara County Private Industry Council. My opponent has declared in a recent publication that I have no experience, but my record demonstrates that I have lengthy experience in both city and county government. I am running for Paso Robles City Council because our City is at a crossroads. Meeting the needs of our citizens, not those of the “special interests,” is my top priority. We can do better with effective planning and development, improved policies on housing and jobs, and the fostering of education for our young people. My experience in business, as well as county and city government, provides me with a unique perspective as to what policies work concerning our City’s development. I ask for your vote so we can chart a course together for the future of our families and the future of Paso Robles. Crossroads As I have said, the City of Paso Robles is at an important junction. Decisions we make today will affect the quality of life for generations to come. Our city streets are deteriorating, but the city government has no plan to tackle this problem. Issues such as ongoing growth and development, and ensuring a vibrant local economy that provides good jobs, need to be addressed in a comprehensive manner. Our school district and its fiscal health need to be assured for the education of our children. Public safety is always a priority and, with the state implementation of SB 54 (Sanctuary State), we must be sure that we are doing everything in our power to protect and defend our citizens and visitors. The needs of special interests groups should never come before those of our City and local citizens.

“These are some of the reasons why I am running for the Paso Robles City Council, and I need your vote so I can “fight” for you”.

In Closing I want to say to the Citizens of Paso Robles, “Let us chart a course for the future together.” I would be honored to serve as your representative on the Paso Robles City Council, and I need your vote to do so. I will always look out for the interests of our Citizens first. I will be a servant of the people who have elected me. No matter where I have served before, it has stemmed from a desire to serve the people. My wife and I have been very blessed living here in Paso Robles, and now I want to give back and serve our community. I pledge to you that I will serve one term and then evaluate my service with input from you, the Citizens of our City. If you tell me that I am doing a good job, I will run once more (God willing), after which I will retire. These are my positions and my goals, and I will do everything I can to deliver for you, the Voters.
