Candidate Biography

From candidate Website

Roger Rivard has been a lifelong resident of Rice Lake. He is happily married to his wife Berni and together they have six adult children along with ten grandchildren. Roger first learned the value of a hard day’s work at a young age while working at his parent’s restaurant in Rice Lake – Rivard’s Dairy Bar and Cafe. These are the hardworking, honest values that inspire him still today.
 
As a real estate professional and small business owner for the last 40 years, Roger Rivard has created jobs, helped hundreds of families achieve the dream of home ownership, brought business developments – representing hundreds of good jobs here to the Northwoods – and donated his time, effort and energy to several community groups including the Rice Lake Chamber of Commerce, the Rice Lake Fire Department, the Knights of Columbus, and his church community.
 
Roger will always put people first. He works for you, no the special interests. Roger has worked to cut wasteful spending and bring fiscal responsibility back to Madison. By doing so, Roger believes that we can make Wisconsin the jewel of the Midwest that it once was…a place where businesses will come to invest in our communities, create jobs and stay here.
 
Roger’s first term in office saw many successful job creation bills passed, several authored by him. He continues to diligently work on behalf of the 75th District to help create more jobs, cut taxes for all Wisconsinites, and improve Government.
