    BIG endorsements for Barrios OUSD Election Campaign
    Community activist Arianna Barrios opens her 2008 Orange Unified School Board campaign in OUSD’s newly reformed Trustee Area 6 with three big gun endorsements: Orange Mayor Carolyn Caveeche; Orange Mayor-Pro Tem Jon Dumitru; and Orange Councilperson Tita Smith. The three highly regarded Orange leaders are hosting the kick-off “Keep moving forward” campaign event at the Barrios home in Orange on Thursday, May 22nd at 5:30 p.m.

    OUSD Trustee Area 6 was OUSD Trustee Steve Rocco’s trustee area until his home was transferred in a “realignment” to OUSD Trustee Rick Ledesma’s Trustee Area 7 after a failed Rocco Recall attempt. The so called “Nichols Realignment” (named for the OUSD Board President Kim Nichols who initiated the “realignment” and was a leader in the Rocco Recall attempt) created a new Trustee Area 6 with no incumbent in the upcoming November election. OUSD trustees must live in the Trustee Area they represent, but are elected district-wide.

    Barrios’ family was been dedicated to community service in the Greater Orange Communities. Her grandfather, Cruz G. Barrios was a founding member of the League of United Latin American Citizens and was instrumental in the legal fight to end school segregation in California. If Arianna Barrios is victorious she will be following in her father’s footsteps in Orange Unified. Her father, Russell Barrios, served two terms on the OUSD Board of Trustees.

    Barrios has worked as a communications advisor for school districts across California. After briefly moving to Texas with her husband Brian Lochrie, the couple returned to California where Arianna became Director of Communications for the Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace. In 2002, Barrios led a network of grassroots players to take over the Central Orange County YWCA from the then Board of Directors after they decided to close the long time community organization Orange location. Barrios is also on the Board of Directors of the Community Foundation of Orange and is the Communications Director for HomeAid’s Project Playhouse.
