Three candidates striving to become Norman’s mayor for next three years

(Continued)

NORMAN —

David Kempf, 51, is a long time resident of Norman, and has spent most of his life in Oklahoma. He grew up on the plains of central Kansas, west of Wichita. He is married to a beautiful woman, Starr, who was born and raised in Norman. Together, they have two adorable young children.

Among Kempf’s qualifications is 25 years as an independent business owner and entrepreneur. He has extensive experience in the construction industry, the real estate industry, and most recently, the computer software industry. He was the chief software architect and engineer at a highly successful venture in Edmond. He is currently the president and CEO of Port 40, an Oklahoma corporation producing cutting edge computer software.

Although Kempf has not needed to serve in the military, he comes from a family that has a rich tradition of serving in the Armed Forces. His love and respect for the military has been deeply nurtured thereby. Both he and his wife have been active supporters of and contributors to the Arts in and about Norman.

Kempf has a BA in Mathematics and an MS in Computer Science, both from the University of Oklahoma. He knows how to apply the principles of logic with clarity in order to solve practical and difficult problems.

Kempf has more than 30 years of experience studying, and teaching the Bible. He has sought no accreditation for that effort other than that suggested to Timothy: “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
