Cerritos College Trustee Sandra Salazar announces “new baby is on the way”

By Brian Hews

For Dr. Sandra Salazar and Enrique Aranda, 2012 was an amazing year.

First, Salazar was elected to the Cerritos College Board of Trustees, and Aranda launched his first bid for public office by entering the March, 2013 campaign for a Norwalk City Council seat.

Over the Chirstmas holidays, the couple announced that they are expecting a child, and the two community leaders couldn’t be more excited.

“I am 13 weeks pregnant,” Salazar told Los Cerritos Community Newspaper on Christmas Eve.  “Enrique and I are very excited and very Blessed,” Salazar said.

Salazar was elected to the Cerritos College Board of Trustees in November after she coasted to an easy upset win over incumbent Dr. Tina Cho of Cerritos.

Aranda is pinning his hopes for elected office as he completes against current incumbent Mayor Cherie Kelly and Councilman Mike Mendez.

Salazar is a medical doctor and Aranda works for the Roman Catholic Church in Los Angeles.

“We are thrilled,” Aranda said.  He and Salazar have been life partners for several years, and this will be their first child.

Salazar is a family medicine physician at Alta Med Health Services and works in the Southeast Los Angeles County area.

 She served as Co-Chair of the first annual Alta Med 5k in 2011 and is currently serving as Co-chair for this year’s event.

Salazar is a huge advocate of active fitness, and was actually surprised after she recently lost 10 pounds.

“So much for that weight I just lost. This is going to be a great new year ahead of us,” Salazar said.
