School board candidate Barron to hold listening post Aug. 15

NORTH LIBERTY– School board candidate Sara Barron will hold a listening post Thursday, Aug. 15, from 5 until 7 p.m. at the North Liberty Community Center.
Barron has said that her top priorities are to encourage collaboration and cooperation throughout the district, to promote the health and well-being of students and staff, to ensure equity in resources throughout the district, and to boost achievement for low-income students and students of color.
Barron is a strong supporter of the third comprehensive high school.
A resident of Johnson County since 1994, Barron, 36, is the community relations director at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Johnson County. She lives in Iowa City with her wife Melissa, an ICCSD special education teacher. The couple has two children, Liam, 11, and Mae, 9.
“Through my work with Big Brothers Big Sisters, I know families and community members from every part of the district,” Barron said. “I’ve listened to their hopes and dreams for their children. I’ve seen the commitment to children that we all share.
“I believe that the district has the opportunity and the obligation to make a big difference in children’s lives, and I want to be a part of that.”
