Rivera for Commissioner
Together - Making Berks and Reading Even Better!!!
One of the keys to a community's "Quality of Life" is a strong local economy with numerous family-sustaining jobs. Berks County is a bastion of small business in a wide variety of industries. Our number one industry by dollars is Agriculture and our number one industry by jobs is Manufacturing. Construction, Healthcare, Education and Retail are also very important. A strong economy means a strong Berks County.

"Many of things that are important to me are important to Christian," Rivera told the crowd. "And that's important because when you have a team of commissioners that have the same vision we can work together to get what needs to be done so that we can continue to grow."
Rivera outlined some goals for the next four years: work on attracting businesses of all sizes to the county; have an educated workforce to help motivate economic development; support entrepreneurs who want to start and grow their businesses; and promote the important role of the agricultural community in the success of the county.
He also stressed the need to accomplish these goals while being fiscally responsible since the taxpayers are the ones footing the bill.
"There's a lot of work that needs to be done, but together we make Berks County and Reading even better," Rivera said to loud applause.
