About Kelly Long
Kelly Long, former Board President of the Pleasant Valley School District, is an experienced businesswoman and a working mother. She has a vested interest in our educational system and our community. She’s running for Supervisor because she can bring her “effective & efficient” personality, skills, and experience to get things done at the County.
Real Business Experience
Kelly is an experienced businesswoman who holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering from CSULB and holds six patents. She managed a $16 million department and understands what it takes to effectively manage budgets, find cost savings, and efficiently manage major projects.
Kelly volunteers on the La Mariposa PTA Board, Las Colinas PTA, PVST Swim Team, & StemYes.Org. Like other busy moms she also shuffles the kids from place to place, which is why she wants to do something about the traffic in Ventura County, making it easier for working families.
Past School Board President
As President of the Pleasant Valley School District, Kelly balanced the budget while helping improve test scores. She helped bring healthier food choices to the cafeteria, developed a hands-on gardening program and improved school technology with outside fundraising.
Throughout her professional and private life, Kelly has been effective in searching out innovative and creative programs with the funds available. She believes it is important to make strategic goals that include long-term planning and communication. In short, she’s a “doer” not a “talker.”
Kelly has been working in Camarillo since 1994 where she started at Royce Medical as a Mechanical Engineer. Later, she and her husband, two young daughters, and two dogs bought a home here to be with family and build a strong community around them. They enjoy living here and take full advantage of the weather and outdoors spaces to do everything from hiking, biking and surfing to hanging out on the soccer fields and at the new Adolfo Camarillo High School Pool.
As a member of the Board of Ventura County Supervisors, Kelly vows to invest the time to make our families and communities successful. With goals and teamwork, she knows we can strive for the highest level of excellence!
