Leslie Rivera, born in Caguas, Puerto Rico, moved with her family as a child to Keeler Park apartments, a subsidized housing community in the 29th Legislative District in Northeast Rochester.

Like many families that immigrated to the United States, the Rivera’s came to the states seeking opportunity. They came to help run the family business, Rivera’s Market in Northeast Rochester. At the age of 16, Leslie began working the day-to-day operations of the market, learning first-hand the successes and challenges of running a small neighborhood family business. Rivera’s would grow to own all four corners of the neighborhood block some serving as specialty stores while others served as residential properties, offering local city residents access to fresh produce and family hospitality.

Leslie battled through the struggles of being an English Language Learner, attending the Bilingual Education Program. With the help of caring teachers, Leslie excelled in school and developed a strong passion for service. Wanting to give back and inspired by those who had done so much for her, Leslie set out to become a teacher joining East High School’s Teaching and Learning Institute (T.L.I.).

A proud graduate of Rochester City Schools, earning her bachelors in education from the State University of Geneseo and masters from the College at Brockport, Leslie returned home to teach at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. School No. 9. She has made it her mission to help create the building blocks for students to have the ability to succeed regardless of where they grow up. As a bilingual educator, Leslie is on the front lines, teaching our families and witnessing the struggles they go through to ensure they have the resources to live.

Serving as the County Legislator for the 29th District, Leslie strives to make government responsible and accessible, bridging the gap between the County Legislature and the community. Using her small business experience, she will work to increase opportunities and resources for businesses to grow and thrive. As a lifelong educator, she will continue to put families first and fight against the painful cuts to family child care, the Parent as Teachers program and family assistance, making sure we have the resources we need live.
