District 4 Worcester City Councilor Sarai Rivera (Encore Episode)

District 4 Worcester City Councilor Sarai Rivera
Program: 
Date: 
Sunday, March 9, 2014 - 10:00pm

In an encore interview, Steven Jones-D'Agostino, strategic partner of Susan Wagner PR + Best Rate of Climb, interviews District 4 Worcester City Councilor Sarai Rivera. They talk  about the role of community development corporations in inner-city housing development. This episode aired originally on August 11, 2013.

More than a century ago, Main South was a summertime respite for many of Worcester's rich and elite. This was before the advent of the auto, when Main South was relatively rural and remote compared with the downtown area.

In recent decades, developers such as Russell Haims of Main South-based Hampton Properties–whose motto is “Peace, Love & Shelter”–have done marvelous restorations of many of these historical and architectural treasures. And, Clark University has closely worked with City Hall, the Main South Community Development Corporation and many others, to make the neighborhood more safe, secure and attractive.

While Main South has come a long way in recent decades, it's still got a long way to go. Steve's guest, Sarai Rivera, talks about that continuing journey. Her district includes Main South. She is also a clinical therapist and co-senior pastor, along with her husband, Jose Encarnacion, of Christian Community Church.
