Rivas for Assembly Campaign
Assemblymember Robert Rivas lives in Hollister with his wife, Christen, and their daughter, Melina. He was elected to serve in the California State Assembly for District 30 in 2018.
Robert has deep roots in San Benito County. He was born and raised in Paicines, California, where his grandfather was a farmworker at Almaden Vineyards. Robert and his brother Rick grew up in farmworker housing, cared for by their single mother and beloved grandparents, who immigrated from Mexico to San Benito County in the early 1960s.
As a parent and former educator, this issue is extremely important to me. We must do a better job of preparing our students for higher education, and for the job market. California must make a greater investment in public education and ensure that its curriculum is adequately preparing students for the challenges they will face in a rapidly changing economic landscape.
Our roads are in desperate need of maintenance. Traffic congestion is a daily headache for many residents of the 30th Assembly District. To protect our quality of life and reduce pollution, we need urgent solutions to our transportation problems. I have been working with community leaders and with my colleagues in Sacramento to secure additional funding for our district and speed up the pace of much-needed maintenance and repairs.
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!
Santa Clara County Supervisor (Ret.)
