My name is Miriam Rivera and I am a single mother of two. I was born and raised in Rochester, NY and a resident in the Town of Gates for over 10 years. I graduated from Edison Technical and Occupation Center and attended Bryant and Stratton and MCC in Brighton during my college years.
I have been in the insurance business for over 20 years working with a myriad of companies that soon inspired me to open something of my own doing something I love. I have two successful Farmers Insurance offices located in the City of Rochester and in Gates, NY. I have been an agent with this company for 7 years while being self-employed overall for 10 years.
Throughout the years, I've seen the good and bad in our community that helped guide me to make my decision to run for office with great integrity and perseverance. The diversity in the community has become one of my inspirations allowing me to believe that I hold the qualities to become the county legislator for the 4th district.
My experience listening to clients and helping them meet their needs will allow me to focus on the needs of my neighbors and making sure their voices are heard.
