Candidate for Kitchener-Waterloo Public School Board Trustee


Hi my name is Claus Dérisma and I have been living and working in the KW community for the past 12 years. I bought my first home here and have been raising my family in this wonderful community since. I am a hardworking and honest individual who enjoys interacting with people.

I am here to listen to the people in the community I love so much and learn from them. I will then take action to get the job done to better our schools and district!


A very common question I come across on social media or when talking to people in the community is “Why am I running for school board trustee?”

I’m running because I care. I care about our community and I care about the people in our community. I want our children in the WRDSB to thrive in life so when they travel across country, across North America, across the world and people say things such as how well educated they are, they can be proud to say I got that education in the Region of Waterloo!

I’m running for school board trustee so our students can shine. I want to get back to the fundamentals with a sprinkle of innovation. I want to encourage our students to try and don’t give up. I’m here to show respect, compassion, care, accountability, loyalty and understanding. I’m here to loan an ear or two and a voice for all. I’m here to come up with solutions to issues and problems we have at our schools and school board level.

So on October 24, 2022 go out and vote and have your voice heard.

    Claus is one of the most hardworking individuals I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. His greatest flaw is that he’s too honorable. He’s the type of person that’s going to accomplish what he sets out to do.
