VALPARAISO | Jeremy Rivas plans to run for a second term next year on the Porter County Council.

Rivas, a Democrat from South Haven, is one of four district-seat council members, whose terms expire at the end of next year.

He said he has been a fiscal conservative and an advocate for public safety, infrastructure improvements, economic development, parks and efficient government.

Rivas said he believes in leading by example and has moved to cut benefits and pay for the County Council, while asking other county departments to cut their budgets in these financially challenging times.

Rivas, who works as a bricklayer, said he understands the importance of "planning your work and then working your plan."

He is planning on kicking off his re-election bid with an event from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Nov. 7 at Clancy's Public House in Portage. Tickets are $25 at the door and the public is welcome.
