MEET MYRA RIVERS
I'm Myra Rivers, and I'm running to be your next State Representative.
I am a lifelong resident of the great city of Ansonia. I have seen over the past few years the incredible strides my hometown and our neighboring community Derby have been able to make under the right leadership, and I decided I wanted to be a part of it.
I am currently studying for to obtain my Bachelors in Business Administration at Pace University, and I will be transferring to the University of New Haven in the fall. I currently manage a retail store in New York City, where I commute from Ansonia.
Under my father, Chicago Rivers leadership as 5th Ward Alderman, I grew interested in politics when I started to see the impact he had on our community. I enlisted in the Army at age 17, and have served in the Reserves since. Being in the army taught me how to fight for whats right, and to defend people in need.
As your next State Representative, I will be your fighter in Hartford, and finally put an end to party politics by advocating for values that matter to our communities, not the agenda partisan insiders are pushing.
