"As a South Pasadena parent, I have watched Michele Kipke's dedication and passion up close for many years now and I know that she is exactly what I would hope for as a representative for our kids on the governing board. I have watched her not only accomplish a tremendous amount on behalf of our kids, but she is a presence on all of our campuses at all of our events. She truly cares and is invested in making our schools safe, innovative and strong and she has the right vision for our future which is why I am supporting her run for re-election this Fall."
