Houston, TX – May 26, 2014 – (RealEstateRama) — On Friday, May 23, 2014, Congressman Al Green released the following statement on the nomination of San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro to be the Director of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
“Mayor Julián Castro is an outstanding public servant who has effectively governed San Antonio for three terms. He has innovated and revitalized a major, multicultural city, through his educational, housing, and economic initiatives. Given his credentials and experience, Mayor Castro has the potential to be an effective director and charismatic voice for the economically underserved in our nation. I trust that the Senate will act expeditiously to confirm Mayor Castro so that our efforts to expand housing opportunities, support urban revitalization, and eliminate housing discrimination continue unabated.”
