Dear South Pasadena - 


It's hard to believe but I have served on the South Pasadena Unified School District's (SPUSD) Governing Board for nearly 10 years. It has been an extraordinary honor to serve our community, families and students, and I have learned so much and benefitted in so many ways. I am also deeply proud of what we have accomplished during the past 10 years and am excited about future plans to further expand our academic programs as we upgrade our school facilities. It is for these reasons that I have decided to run for re-election this coming November. 


During the coming months, you will see and hear more from me. One of the things I love most about campaign season is going door-to-door to meet and talk with members of our community, to hear what is most important to them. I hope to have the opportunity to talk with you.


It goes without saying that running a campaign is a big job and I welcome your help. Please let me know if you would like to provide an endorsement, help me get the word out, have a groovy yard sign in your yard and/or host a coffee for me. I will be updating my website this summer so please check back next month.


I love our little town, its enormous heart and soul, and its unwavering commitment to our children, our families, and our schools.  It would be an honor to continue to serve this community on the SPUSD School Board and I hope you will support me during our next election.


Best wishes,


Michele Kipke





I'm running for re-election!
