Current school board member Dave Kemp has lived in Burbank since September 1966. He was employed by Burbank Unified for more than three decades, working as a teacher, coach and athletic director. Kemp served for years on the Burbank Teachers Assn. negotiations team, and was part of the committee that helped develop school-site councils in the mid-1990s.
Kemp was first elected to the school board in 2003, emerging from a field of 15 candidates. He was re-elected in 2007 after his seat went unchallenged.
Why are you seeking reelection?
The majority of my adult life has been in the service of Burbank Unified School District, having served as a teacher, coach, athletic director, mentor teacher and Board of Education member.
I wish to continue to serve the district and the community of Burbank. In these very uncertain economic times, I believe experienced leadership is important to the future of the district and the students we serve.
