My name is Michael Kemps and I am running to represent you on the Palos Verdes Estates City Council. I grew up here – and my wife, Gemma and I cherish our City, having raised our three children here. At the core of my desire to serve is growing concern around keeping Palos Verdes Estates special. Retaining the unique qualities of our neighborhood by supporting our residents – and not outside business interests is key. I cherish our views, open space, and the rural feeling of our City.
The sum of my experience brings qualities to effectively contribute and represent you: leading a technology solutions business for thirty years as its founder and CEO, participating on the advisory board of a community bank, involvement with numerous non-profit organizations, and coordinating multiple home and business remodel and construction projects. I believe in fiscal responsibility, accountability, ethical practices, transparency, protecting our home values, and pastoral environment. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve.
