Tony Rivero is a Republican representing one of the two seats in the Arizona House of Representatives in District 21.
After winning election to Peoria's Acacia District on the City Council by a landslide in 2010, he quickly earned a reputation as an advocate for Fiscal Responsibility and Open Government.
Fiscal Responsibility will continue to be his top priority as a Representative of the Arizona Legislature.
Rep. Rivero grew up in the part of the West Valley that is now part of District 21. He attended Peoria Elementary School, Peoria High School and Arizona State University where he earned a Bachelor's degree in Education and a Master's degree in Public Administration.
In addition to his formal education, Rivero worked in the Peoria City Manager's office as well as other City Departments. Additionally he interned for former Senator Jon Kyl, and was a volunteer for Senator John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign.
Rivero's extensive knowledge of the district, thanks to his time in public service, combined with his commitment to serve the voters of District 21, assists him in being an effective leader in the State Legislature.
