Endresen, Camp, McDonald win school board seats

Dick Endresen has a long record of public service. Now that record will grow by four more years.

Endresen has been re-elected by voters to the North Kitsap School Board in his race against Myron Lee.

Endresen served on the board for four previous terms. He has seen a lot of changes in the North Kitsap School Board, among them the initiation and growth of Spectrum Community School, the building of Gordon Elementary, the implementation of the WASL, and most recently, the passing of a $60-million bond that will fund a new secondary school in the Kingston area.

“I think this shows that the public endorses what the school board has been doing ... that they’re happy with what’s been going on with the board,” Endresen said.

Lee, who owns his own business and had a daughter graduate from NKHS last June, was making his first bid at a school board seat.

Brad Camp adds youth to board

His father is a college dean. His daughter is entering elementary school. Now Brad Camp will be the youngest member of the North Kitsap School Board. Camp had no opponent in his race for the North Kitsap School Board’s district five seat, which was vacated when Marie Hebert stepped down.

Camp, a community relations director for Sprint, who is married and the father of a young daughter, could not be reached for comment Tuesday night.

Bethany McDonald returned to board

Bethany McDonald was board president as voters passed a $60 million bond to help propel the NKSD into the future. Now she will be able to oversee the results. McDonald, who lives in the school district’s district three, has been reelected by voters for a second term.

“I’m pleased that I can look forward to serving another four years,” McDonald said.

The voters, she said, have proved they are pleased with the school district’s direction.

“All the trends are positive as far as test scores, class size, and passing the bond,” she said. “I think we’re on the right track.”

Incumbent McDonald was opposed by newcomer Christopher Tibbs.
