VOTE ELVIA M. RIVAS
Ontario City Council 2016
Elvia stays committed to putting public safety first while bringing Ontario together as a thriving community.
I am honored to seek your support for the Ontario City Council. I have humbly served the City of Ontario for 16 years in several capacities within the Ontario Eastern Little League, Kiwanis Club of Ontario, Kids Come First, Ontario-Montclair YMCA and the Ontario-Montclair School District. I have a demonstrated history of exemplary leadership within these organizations and have had the responsibility of planning and organizing a myriad of community events and activities that has benefited the residents of Ontario for several years. In addition to graduating from San Diego State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies, with Bilingual emphasis, I have long dedicated my life to serving others and making the lives of those I impact better.
As a longtime resident of Ontario and an employee at the Ontario International Airport, I also believe in Ontario’s future. As your councilwoman, I will tirelessly advocate to promote small business growth, thoughtful and well planned real estate development and continuously develop programs that encourage healthy families and children. I believe that the City of Ontario can become a world class example of both urban and suburban growth by investing now in our water, green energy, transportation and digital infrastructure in conjunction with making sure our city services of fire, police, code enforcement, etc. receive the necessary resources to be effective for the fine citizens of Ontario. Ontario needs and deserves strong leadership on the City Council.
The City of Ontario is poised to attract the innovative businesses, corporations and developers due to the quality of life our community offers. I have been privileged to serve as an elected official for two terms on the state of California’s 3rd largest K-8 school system and accept leadership assignments from community organizations I belong to, which has prepared me to make critical decisions for Ontario’s future. I am a principled leader with core values that center around the welfare of children, families and senior citizens. Given the opportunity, I will proudly continue serve you as your next City Councilwoman to make sure Ontario’s future stays on the right course for all of us.
