Julian Castro Throws His Hat in the Ring for Mayor

By December 7, 2008

In what came as a surprise to nobody, former District 7 councilman Julian Castro formally announced his candidacy for mayor today at San Pedro Park.

Introduced by former mayor Henry Cisneros, Castro said that he has learned a lot and made more progress with the business community since his failed 2005 mayoral bid, which he lost to current mayor Phil Hardberger in a hotly-contested runoff.

Castro joins public relations expert Trish DeBerry and District 8 Councilwoman Diane Cibrian as announced candidates. Although they have confirmed their desire to run, official filing for the election does not begin until February of next year.
