“I’ve known Mike for thirty years, and he is a great thinker, he challenges people, and he’s got it in his heart to be a great Victorville Council member,” said Victor Valley College Board President Joseph W. Brady. “We need people who know how to get to the core of our problems and deal with issues. Mike Stevens is that candidate.”

“As someone who once attended Victor Valley College and whose children attended VVC, it’s exciting for me to be honored with the support of a majority of the Board of Trustees,” said Stevens. “I look forward to a productive relationship between Victor Valley College and the City of Victorville when I am elected to the City Council.”

In 2002, Mike Stevens received the Victor Valley College Foundation’s Distinguished Service Award (DSA). Established in 1993, the DSA recognized three individuals for doing good things for their community.  Nominees must have made a significant contribution in at least one of the following categories:

• A continuing effort to “give back” to the community

• An outstanding effort on one significant project or activity that merits recognition

• A silent “hero” who quietly goes about the community making a difference, but usually doesn’t receive recognition for his/her efforts

• A significant contribution to a profession or career

• A significant contribution to Education in general.

A 33-year Victorville resident and retired, decorated Air Force veteran, Mike Stevens has a unique background and perspective about past, present and future issues confronting Victorville. As a former Victorville Planning Commissioner, a member of the city’s Legislative Review Committee, former Field Representative for our County Supervisor, former Community Service Officer with the County Sheriff’s Department, and former city employee, Stevens understands how government works and what it takes to get things done.
