Michael A. Rivera
At Large Member School Board
IT’S TIME FOR ACTION
As a dedicated father, law enforcement officer, and concerned community member, I am passionate about improving the Loudoun County School Board. I was raised in the Bronx and educated in the New York City public school system where I learned how important a strong public school system is to create a thriving economy for the future. I was fortunate to go to college and received two degrees in engineering, and I worked in IT at Discovery Channel before transitioning to construction and ultimately becoming a detective with the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.
For the past six years, my wife Paula and our two children, Gabriel and Olivia, have called Loudoun County home, and I am deeply committed to making our schools safer and more transparent. While I had long assumed that the Loudoun County School Board had the best interests of my family and community in mind, I soon discovered that this was not the case. Multiple scandals, a lack of transparency, and a lack of accountability motivated me to speak out against the board and advocate for positive change.
As a school board member, I will prioritize transparency, accountability, and safety, and I am eager to represent the voices of parents and families throughout the community. With my unique blend of experience and passion, I am the ideal candidate to bring renewal to the Loudoun County School Board. I am committed to creating a school system that provides every child with the opportunity to reach their full potential, and I will work tirelessly to improve our schools.
