CEO Appoints Permanent Registrar of Voters

(Santa Ana, CA) - Steven Rodermund, Interim Registrar since January, has been appointed by County Executive Officer James Ruth to the permanent position of Registrar of Voters. The appointment is effective December 22.

Rodermund joined the County in 1997 as a budget analyst in the County Executive Office. He coordinated budget preparation for all public protection programs and community/social services departments. He was later assigned temporarily in a management support position in the Registrar of Voters’ Office. In September 2001, Rodermund became the Chief Deputy Registrar and, upon the retirement of former Registrar Rosalyn Lever, he was appointed Interim Registrar.

Rodermund was a budget section supervisor for the Orange County Transportation Authority for four years after having served as an Army officer from 1988 – 1992.
He holds a bachelor’s degree in business from Park College, Missouri and a masters in business administration from Boston University. Rodermund also graduated from the Army’s Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.

“Steve has done an exemplary job of working through the many difficult issues surrounding this fall’s recall election,” said Ruth. “We successfully stood that test and now he’s providing leadership in rolling out the new, electronic voting system. He had a lead role in the selection process for the new equipment. I have confidence that Steve, in this new position, will continue to move the Registrar’s Office toward greater efficiencies and community outreach.”
