Obama nominates Latina to federal personnel agency

WASHINGTON, DC, May 23, 2013 (AP): President Barack Obama says he will nominate Katherine Archuleta, a former top campaign aide, as director of the Office of Personnel Management. Archuleta would be the first Latina to direct the agency, which oversees and sets policies for the federal government's civil service workforce.

Archuleta was national political director for Obama's presidential campaign in 2011 and 2012. If confirmed by the Senate she will replace acting director Elaine Kaplan. The previous director, John Berry, stepped down last month when his four-year term expired.

Before her stint on Obama's campaign, Archuleta was chief of staff at the Department of Labor and before that was a senior adviser for the city and county of Denver. She was executive director of the National Hispanic Cultural Center Foundation from 2002 to 2005.
