Smart Voter Full Biography for Stephen DeRuse

Candidate for
Council Member; City of La Mirada

This information is provided by the candidate

My wife Mary and I have lived in La Mirada since 1975, where we have raised two daughters, Adrienne and Elaine. The city of La Mirada has provided excellent opportunities and safety for our family. I decided to become involved in our community over 10 years ago to help La Mirada maintain the standard of living that our residents are accustomed. As a pastor I offer leadership, organization, moral ethics, education, responsibility, family values, and faith to our city.

I have volunteered in our community serving as Community Services Commissioner, president of the Rotary Club, President of the Clergy Council, member of the La Mirada Citizens Task Force, and an active member of the Chamber of Commerce. I hold a Master's degree and recently completed doctorate studies, both from Fuller Theological Seminary.

I was a small business owner for 20 years.
