Roberto Jiménez Rivera’s photo

Roberto Jiménez Rivera’s multicultural upbringing and his extensive involvement in community organizing propelled him to run for public office leading successful, inclusive campaigns. Jiménez Rivera was born in Norwood, Massachusetts to Puerto Rican parents and throughout his academic and professional path he has championed quality education for all. As a current at-large member of the Chelsea School Committee, he has been the highest vote-getter in that city for the last two elections. Roberto is an organizer with the Boston Teacher’s Union and his political project is motivated by his role as a parent and his commitment to building a better future for his 2-year-old son and every other member of the community.




Jiménez Rivera comes from an extensive background in education policy which gives him a sharp perspective of the needs of his community in terms of education and the actions required to satisfy those needs, nevertheless, his policy goals are comprehensive and include other key issues.





Roberto is committed to incorporating voter education around the Fair Share Amendment to his door-knocking efforts. Jiménez Rivera highlights that voters in his district need to be aware that the FSA would not signify higher taxes for people in their bracket and that it could improve the public investment in areas that need the resources. Jiménez Rivera sees value in making sure that the next governor of Massachusetts is a woman and a democrat and plans to work from his position at the State House to make sure that the people of this community who are most hurt by the injustice are heard.




Language justice has been key in hiring the current campaign staff and Roberto highlights the importance of having a campaign manager that speaks Spanish. Jiménez Rivera has focused on door-knocking to discuss his political project directly with his electorate. Roberto recognizes that his district is a new one that unites Chelsea under the same district for the first time in decades, giving the city the opportunity to have a representative with extensive knowledge of the community’s need. Additionally, Jiménez Rivera has made efforts to reach the Everett electorate informing voters about the results of the redistricting process and making the commitment to build together regardless of where the voters are from.


Roberto has been widely endorsed by the local education ecosystem including the Everett School Committee Members Samantha Lambert and Marcony Almeida-Barros, the Boston Teachers Union, the Chelsea Teachers Union, among others. Additionally, he has been endorsed by Chelsea City Councilors Damali Vidot and Enio López as well as Senator Jamie Eldridge and Senator Erika Uyterhoeven. Other organizations that endorse Roberto are the Sierra Project and the Environmental League of Massachusetts, Progressive Mass, Mass Alliance, UFCW and SEIU Local 888.




The Jiménez Rivera campaign has raised close to $50k. Donate
