It's official: Mayor Julian Castro has filed to seek a third term as mayor of San Antonio. The election is in May.
From Texas Public Radio:
“One of the things I'm going to be tackling is this issue of preparing our workforce better; linking up education with the needs of our employers so that no employer ever has to wonder whether they can find the talent, the skills that they need in the workforce here in San Antonio,” he said Tuesday after filing for office.
Castro spearheaded an ambitious effort to provide Pre-K to disadvantaged San Antonio children and passed a ballot measure last November to raise funds to do so. He clearly sees eye-to-eye with President Barack Obama on the need to invest in our future through providing strong educational access for all.
Castro was first elected in 2007, and Castro won re-election in 2009 with 83% of the vote. No serious challengers are expected.
