"Ms. Arnold will work to carry out my priorities for quality education, pro-choice and educational opportunity," Barry said. "As a native Washingtonian and experienced D.C. government employee, Ms. Arnold knows how the government really works and will be very effective meeting the needs of Ward 8 residents."
"Kathy", as she's fondly known throughout the city, attended American University and UDC. She received her Public Administrator certification from the George Washington University.
In addition to serving as Barry's liaison to the Ward 8 Education Council, Arnold's duties will put her in touch with the Office of the State Superintendent, D.C. Public Schools, Office of the Chancellor as well as other external education organizations.
