Assembly Speaker Designate Robert Rivas was first elected to serve as a State Assemblymember in 2018. A lifelong resident of the district, Rivas served two terms on the San Benito County Board of Supervisors prior to becoming an Assemblymember.
Rivas was raised in Paicines, California, where his grandfather was a farmworker at Almaden Vineyards. Rivas and his brother Rick grew up in farmworker housing, cared for by their single mother and beloved grandparents, who emigrated from Mexico in the 1960s.
What People Are Saying
I strongly urge all Santa Clara County residents to support Robert Rivas for State Assembly. Robert understands the needs of South Santa Clara County residents. He’ll fight for increased funding for roads and transportation, more affordable housing, and better schools for our children. He’s a principled leader who we can trust to deliver results. I am proud to support him!
