COMMISSIONERS RIVERA & LEINBACH
Your Proven Team to Keep Making Berks Better
Our Commitment to Berks County
We get it! Groceries, gas and housing costs are high. Berks County Government is fighting inflation by growing our economy, keeping taxes low and serving you.
Berks County is Financially Strong & Responsibly Managed under the Leadership of Commissioners Rivera & Leinbach
Berks is one of only three counties in the state of Pennsylvania with a Moody's rating of Aaa—the highest rating attainable—a reflection of Berks' strong tax base and superior financial management.
New businesses are coming to Berks and existing businesses have grown. This expansion has boosted Berks County revenue by nearly $2 million.
Inflation has made money tight at the grocery store, gas pump, and everywhere in between. Inflation has risen a staggering 40% since 2008, but in Berks, spending has increased just 10%.
Rivera & Leinbach are for the Restoration of Passenger Rail Service and Growth of the Reading Regional Airport
We are committed to bringing passenger rail service to Berks County. We’ve already made more progress than any prior board of commissioners–by approving the formation of the Schuylkill River Passenger Rail Authority and partnering with Amtrak to bring Reading-to-Philly bus service back in the meantime.
Ours is the first board of commissioners to tackle declining use of the Reading Regional Airport. We’re leading the future of the airport by implementing an economic growth plan. We’ve partnered with airport tenants to improve and grow aviation operations at RDG and to become the best general aviation airport in PA.
Berks County is a Great Place to Live & Work under Rivera & Leinbach's Leadership
Berks County is a leader in ag. preservation and has some of the best county parks and trails in PA, enriching the quality of life for our community with beautiful natural resources that promote healthy lifestyles.
Unemployment has fallen to 3.6% in Berks County, and nearly 2,500 jobs have been added in the last year alone. Our commitment to strong fiscal policy keeps county spending low and more of your paycheck in your pocket.
Congressman Dan Meuser (9th District)
“Christian and Michael are strong conservatives that manage Berks County in the interest of the taxpayers. They understand the limited role of government. I encourage you to re-elect Commissioners Rivera and Leinbach"
