Washington
San Antonio Mayor Castro nominated for HUD position
WASHINGTON (5/28/14)--President Barack Obama has nominated San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro to be the new Housing and Urban Development (HUD) secretary. Castro, 39, is one of the youngest mayors of a major city in the United States.
 
Castro is the grandson of Mexican immigrants and, in 2001, he was San Antonio's youngest elected councilman at age 26.
 
Elected as mayor of San Antonio in 2009, Castro has followed the footsteps of longtime friend Henry Cisneros, who himself was the youngest elected councilman in San Antonio in 1975, became mayor of the city, and served as HUD secretary under former President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 1997.
 
If confirmed, Castro will replace Shaun Donovan, who has been nominated to be the new director of the White House Office of Management and Budget.
